Liberal TV ads waste of money, annoying

It is becoming extremely annoying to be constantly bombarded by the B.C. Liberal government’s political agenda ads on TV.

Re: Canada starts here ads

It is becoming extremely annoying to be constantly bombarded by the B.C. Liberal government’s political agenda ads on TV.

As a viewer, I find the ads are irritating, overpowering and completely unnecessary, not to mention a complete waste of taxpayers’ money.

Besides, we all know that “Canada starts here” in the West, but I do believe you’ll find that Canada also starts in the East.

Here are two suggestions:

1. For the interest and benefit of families in B.C., the Liberal party should curtail, or better still, completely eliminate these unwanted ads before the end of the festive season.

2. Since the ads are of a political nature, perhaps the following phrase should be placed at the bottom of each ad: “Paid for, but not approved, by the taxpayers of British Columbia.”
