Where are the attack ads against Harper?
I mean, think about it. Harper spends years sullying Leaders of the Official Opposition on some rather petty stuff (such as the beverage of choice of a certain former Official Opposition Leader). It takes a lot of work to successfully instil a public perception about a politician in the public consciousness, but the Conservatives have succeeded at it enough to win big enough pluralities in Canada's winner-take-all system to win a majority of the seats.
Since Harper has mastered mixed personally-based/issue-based negative campaigning, using pretty dishonest tactics, why can't the NDP start honestly reminding people of the many piling scandals the Federal CONS are embroiled in right now? Maybe it's party finances, but some good issue-based attack ads against Stephen Harper and his pals are needed right now.
