Attack ads insulting

Attack ads rely on half truths and innuendo and they bring out the nasty side in people, one reader says.

To the Editor,

I like to be with people who bring out the best in me, what is noble, and kind, positive and strong.

So I don’t like attack ads that cater to and encourage my nasty side, and try to scare me with half truths and innuendo.

The latest ads by the Harper government attacking Thomas Mulcair do nothing for political discourse in Canada and are an insult to voters.

We don’t need to import the mess that we see in the USA where positive action is stopped by childish tantrums, and dirty tricks are an accepted campaign tool.  It’s time to let our MPs know we demand some maturity.
