Signs an election is getting closer 
(en francais)

Liberal Government funded ads touting something that they want to campaign on.

National campaign launched to raise awareness of primary health care


Cost: $9,592,000

|TV Ad(Windows)| |TV Ad (Quicktime)|

Like 'em or not, at least the Conservative Party of Canada PAID for their own ads.

I'll give the Liberals credit though, they've managed to introduce a new wrinkle:
The National Primary Health Care Awareness Strategy

The National Primary Health Care Awareness Strategy (NPHCAS) is a joint project with federal, provincial and territorial partners. Its goal is to increase awareness and understanding of primary health care among Canadians.
Take a close look at the top right hand corner of the website - "Funded by Health Canada."

The ad campaign:
Television ads will run on national networks for six weeks starting tomorrow, September 21, 2005, and will be repeated for another six weeks in January 2006. Print ads will appear over eight weeks in the Saturday edition of many daily and weekly newspapers across the country beginning this Saturday, September 24, and also repeated in January 2006.
The timing is coincidental of course. Six weeks of TV ads and eight weeks of print leading up to the release of the Gomery report. Follow that up with a repeat in January, leading up to an election call, if we haven't already had one.

Should be interesting to see what other fascinating 'education' initiatives the Liberals decide to launch in the coming months.

It's only your tax dollars hard at work.
