I am listening to the Blue Jays’ audio feed of their playoff game against the Rangers. I am doing so for two reasons: (1) I am attempting to work and have no TV in my office; and (2) MLB has a lousy video-streaming policy for its postseason games. This game is not available to MLB.TV subscribers unless they are outside the US and Canada. (Thanks, MLB, for your not-safe-for-21st-century live-video policy.)
I just heard a campaign ad. The announcer points out that for years, Canadian voters have voted Conservative when tired of Liberals, and Liberal when tired of Conservatives. He then says, this year, “vote for change”, but unless I missed it (I am, after all, attempting to work), no party other than Liberal and Conservative was mentioned. At the end it was indicated that the message was paid by one of the unions (specifically indicated, but I do not recall).
It was pretty clearly a pro-NDP ad, and I assume they can’t mention the party they want you to vote for due to some provisions of Canadian law. Can anyone enlighten me on campaign law?
