Outgoing MPP says party was wrong for positive ads

Frank Klees made the comments as he criticized the Liberals

One Tory MPP reveals his party was wrong to have a wave of advertisements before the 2003 provincial election, when they were in power.

Outgoing MPP Frank Klees made the comments as he accused the Liberals of getting a jump on a possible election campaign by showing positive advertisements during your favourite TV shows and sporting events.

And because they're government ads, it's all paid for by your taxdollars.

Klees says the Liberals should be showcasing the issues in Ontario, as opposed to making things look rosy. And while he says the Progressive Conservatives did that too while they were in power, it's time to break the cycle.

The Auditor General vets government ads for any overtly political content.

Klees says its time fro a change in government.
