Canada’s famous environmentalist David Suzuki features prominently in a new television commercial that has drawn the criticism of the Ontario’s auditor general.
Bonnie Lysyk claims that the pro cap-and-trade ad would have breached past rules banning political ads constructed using taxpayer money.
Premier Kathleen Wynne has defended the ad, arguing that is targets one of our planet’s most important environmental issues, rather than a political one.
The Liberal government altered the rules governing partisan advertising a year ago, a move which ended up limiting Lysyk’s power to reject certain content.
Watch the ad below. Do you think it should be pulled?
