Its election day, Ontario! Don't let Sun media turn you off voting

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.
