We Can’t Win, So Vote For Us Anyway Because The Other Parties Suck: Watch The Ontario Liberals New Ad

One of the strangest ads seen in Canadian politics.

On the heels of Kathleen Wynne’s announcement that she’s conceding the election before any votes are even counted, the Ontario Liberals have released one of the strangest ads ever seen in Canadian politics.

From the outset, the ad admits defeat – saying that voters will chose a new government on Election Day, and then attacks both the PCs and NDP, before saying that people should vote Liberal to stop either party from having power.

Huh?

It’s message is basically “We can’t win, so vote for us anyway because the other parties suck.”

You can watch the ad below:

The ad – and Wynne’s premature concession – is an acknowledgment of her horrendous popularity numbers, but it’s still an appalling strategy. Any momentum that could have still existed within the Ontario Liberal Party has been snuffed out. Volunteers and candidates will be totally demoralized.

Also, the ad reveals the same arrogance that turned so many people against Kathleen Wynne in the first place. Her party thinks it’s great when they get a majority, but other parties seeking a majority need to be stopped by giving power to the Liberals.

Interesting ‘logic’…

Of course, if Ontarians trusted the Liberals with power, the party wouldn’t be in such a sad and desperate position.

What about the blank cheques that have been given to the Liberals over the course of the last 15 years! Will the despicable arrogance of Wynne ever end?

This old bag is the worst most dishonest piece of crap to have ever been in politics. This move just proves the fact. The only thing worse than this clown would be an ndp Gov.We have had enough of socialism in On we sure do not need communism.

Not strange at all, it’s called being a spoiler. Expect the same from Trudeau when his turn comes.
It hopes to set up a situation that that makes it difficult or impossible to undo the horrific mess they made and help get back in power asap.

It is pretty obvious to me what the liberal logic is here… get what liberal supporters that are left to vote for the NDP and maybe they will form a government, a majority government. So the Ontario liberals might not have official party status anymore but so what. The federal conservatives after Mulroney were down to two members and they bounced back to form a government later on.

Why are these Liberals still tossing money onto the fire? Gosh, what an absolute embarrassment. A vote for Libs or NDP will flush Ontario straight down the toilet.

The Lieberal/NDP socialist mainstream owned media has been saying this for a while, while really demonizing Conservatives, and the NDP as the Lieberals have almost destroyed Ontario and need to for their agenda, to totally collapse us to bring the whole of Canada down. So either of the communist parties can finish their destruction of Ontario, but one needs to win. Vote Doug Ford, he will be well demonized by the Lieberal/NDP communists, but he is the last chance of ever regaining our prosperity and freedom in what was a great province. Conservatives brought us to prosperity many years ago,… Read more »

The Liberals have openly showed for all to see their arrogance and conceit that no other party can govern Ontario.This admission of defeat is so very disingenuous that it is really just a insult to every voter. As a ploy or trick, it is a failure, because most voters have had enough of the Liberal arrogance, conceit and false virtuousness . As well of their deceitful promises that never quite become fulfilled and are considered by Wynne to be nothing more than stretch goals, not to be achieved. An honest person that admits defeat, usually can be taken at their… Read more »

The biggest worry is a Liberal/NDP coalition. I could imagine them trying it even if Ford has the most seats. FOrd winning a majority is the only way to prevent disaster.
