Nice work, Libs:

Two new Liberal ads in support of the federal long gun registry feature an image of a U.S. police officer electronically altered to include a shoulder patch worn by the Ottawa Police Service.

The distinctive crest appears to have been edited to remove the word Ottawa, but the image of a crossed shield with orange embellishments, flanked by golden leaves, would make it recognizable to residents of Ottawa.  […]

The Citizen traced the picture to a series of stock photos sold by an agency based in North Carolina. A photo editor with the Ron Chapple Studios said the model is a real police officer serving with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police force.

Lame-o:  they couldn’t even find an Ottawa cop for the ad?  All they had to do was go to the nearest Tim Horton’s.  Or maybe just set a box-trap full of superdelicious choco donuts, ha!

    The incompetence of the modern Liberal is staggering.

    It would be hilarious if not for the fact that it just emphasizes why the Libs are polling at 26% and the CPC’s at 33.

    When is Iggy leaving? No really… He is the biggest screw up. The Liberals would be a joke if there were another party…but the Cons? In the last election, the bozo Liberal running in our riding couldn’t even spell the name of our town correct on her website.

    I guess you guess are totally unaware of the stock photography industry. First, you would have to get permission of the Ottawa Police force, then the particular model (officer), including the model releases and property releases from the City as well. (It would never happen, the city would never give permission to put officers into the middle of a political hot potato, but just for fun, lets pretend they did.) Then, you have to make sure that your Ottawa police model is photogenic (as much as people say looks don’t matter, it just isnt so). Then, you need to get a professional photographer, not some bozo who just got a camera for Christmas or your campaign will look like it was shot by some bozo who got a camera for Christmas. The image show above is professionally lit, and shot in a studio. Add studio rental to the bill. Now, you find a day when your model and photographer are both available at the same time. Now, guess how much time and money you have just spent? OR, you can go online and purchase already shot images for just about any budget that you have, already model and property released, ready to insert into your ad or publication. There are literally millions of images already shot, waiting to be downloaded. Grousing about someone using stock is like complaining that TV shows are pre-recorded and not broadcast live…..

    There are no stock photos of Canadian cops?

    Have a sense of humour, I’m just having a little fun.

    The long gun registry is not a winning election issue liberals. The idea in picking political fights is to pick the fight that either most unifies your party or most divides your opposition. This bill does neither of those, but I think it would actually do the opposite of both. Scrapping the bill is an election issue for conservatives, one that will will band together over and there and plenty of LPC members are against it as well.

    For Iggy, this is the Wost Strategy Ever.


    Even though Iggy is promising to decriminalize not registering your guns and remove user fees, this won’t win him one vote, imo. That is unless Iggy plans on winning the next election without any rural ridings.

Wait. What?
