ELECTION 2003: COMMERCIALS TARGET EVES, McGUINTY

Freedom Party Releases Three Humourous Commercials on Web Site


The Freedom Party of Ontario today has released three commercials on its web site: https://freedomparty.on.ca. "The humour in each commercial is certain to quietly anger its subjects [Ernie Eves and Dalton McGuinty], but that is not the reason for this approach" explains Freedom Party leader Paul McKeever. "We think the humour will drive home some very important messages about Mr. Eves and Mr. McGuinty. Mr. Eves' experience is no substitute for decisiveness and a vision. In the case of Mr. McGuinty, it is important to remember that leadership is not measured simply by the number of volumes in ones election platform."

The first commercial, "Experience" (approx. 11 meg.), is a spoof on the filming of one of Ernie Eves' recent "Experience for the Road Ahead" commercials. It underscores for the voter that Ernie Eves' claim to experience doesn't cut it: that Eves' attempt to sell himself with "experience" is an attempt to avoid the issues.

The second, "Magic Eight Ball" (approx. 13 meg.), proposes a theory about how Ernie Eves has been determining his government's policies since taking office (just try to disprove it). Filmed prior to the August 14th, 2003 black-out, the origin of the 4.3 cent electricity price cap decision is investigated.

The third, "Dullton" (approx. 9 meg.), is a spoof on Mr. McGuinty's "not tired, not jaded" commercial. A commentary on Mr. McGuinty's woodenness, it ultimately asks one to consider whether Mr. McGuinty could be taken seriously and respected as a Premier.


Paul McKeever (who will be running in the riding of Oshawa, against Sid Ryan and Jerry Ouellette) is available to discuss this matter. You can contact him directly at:

Freedom Party is expected to run candidates in approximately half of Ontario's ridings in the coming election.
