So let me get this straight: on the weekend before election day, the far-right-wing tabloid — whose TV station Harper pushed to launch and to fund with tax dollars — prints an “exclusive” (but old and second-hand) story that connects Harper’s main competitor to racialized sex work (or at least to a small-business sector routinely stigmatized as such).
Could this be a more obvious, more cynical, or more desperate smear campaign? I fully expect it will make more people vote for Layton.
