A new group is launching an ad campaign to make sure Erin O’Toole never becomes Prime Minister.
The advocacy group The Protecting Canada Project is taking out ads on TV and online starting Friday, warning a Conservative government under O’Toole would cut funding for health care, even during the pandemic.
Spokesman Ian Wayne, who formerly worked for the NDP says the group was formed by Canadians with diverse political experience and a common goal of ensuring the Conservatives don’t win the next election.
Here’s the text from the :30 second spot featuring a female voice, set to instrumental music.
“We’ve never needed Canadian healthcare more, yet Conservative Erin O’Toole voted for a $36 billion dollar cut to your healthcare. Now, he’s endorsing Alberta’s Conservative COVID response. They’re cutting 11,000 health workers. More Conservative cuts like these, could force tens of thousands of healthcare layoffs across Canada. O’Toole and Conservatives are hazardous to your health at the worst possible time.”
