SunTV Shines Light on Freedom Party of Ontario


September 7, 2011 Toronto - Ontario's election writ will be dropped today, and Freedom Party of Ontario is targeting like-minded voters with an edgy TV election commercial campaign on the popular new SunTV news channel. 

"On radio and TV, political commentators are expressing concern that Ontario's Hudak PCs are running on a platform substantively indistinguishable from that of the McGuinty Liberals", says Freedom Party leader Paul McKeever.  "Liberal-Tory, same old story.  However, for the first time in our party's history, the Freedom Party is running enough candidates to form the next government of Ontario.  Our ads will show Ontario voters that Freedom Party is the one party willing to deliver the changes that they have been demanding for years, but that neither the Liberals, nor the Progressive Conservatives, nor the NDP are willing to deliver upon."

The Freedom Party's commercials pull no punches. The first volley of commercials, aired this week, deal frankly and boldly with the changes that Ontario voters are demanding, including:
- Affordable Electricity (Clean, inexpensive electricity, not fighting climate change)
- Scrapping McGuinty's Health Premium
- Eliminating Ontario's 14.7 cent/litre gasoline tax
- Beer & Wine in Convenience and Grocery Stores
- Eliminating the current system of multiple prayers in Official Legislative Proceedings
- Separating PUBLIC Schools and Organized Religious Practice
- Increasing the Speed Limit to 120 km/h on Ontario's 400-series Highways
- Fair Auto Insurance (ending the no-fault experiment: only at-fault driver pays)
- Canceling McGuinty's 2012 Ban on Incandescent Light Bulbs; and
- Ending McGuinty's Pesticide Ban

The commercials will begin airing on September 7, 2011 on SunTV's 6:00AM to 5:00PM news rotation, as well as on Ezra Levant's "The Source", Michael Coren's "The Arena", and Brian Lilley's "Byline".
