Front page ad insulted intelligence

Much has been made of the new front page ads on the PNR

Much has been made of the new front page ads on the PNR. As is the norm, the usual whiners submitted their childish and marxist rhetoric masked as genuine concern and sentimental ponderings.

I have, until now, completely disagreed with them. I applaud the paper for joining forces with business both local and from the rest of Greater Victoria to earn a few bucks and keep them in print. I do however take issue with last Wednesday’s front page ads.

Promoting local businesses is one thing, but taking tax payer money from a government agency who wants to insult our intelligence is quite another.

Anyone who needs an ad like that to tell them to put on a helmet, sunscreen, life jacket or to use crosswalks would not posses the mental capacity to read the paper in the first place.
