Yup, it's October 6, 2011, provincial election day in Ontario. With their favoured candidate making gaffe after gaffe, and Rob Ford not helping either... Sun Media clearly smells a loser, and has abandoned all hope for Hudak. The best result for them is for people to miss the vote today.
So what is their reponse this election day? It's to turn you off voting.
See the cover of the Ottawa Sun, for a case in point. Why vote, when they are "all the same" -- at least by association in their cover image.
Tell the Sun how wrong they are. Vote.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
