Peas in a pod (XXV)
From a Gary Kean report in the Western Star, February 19, 2005:
Corner Brook - Premier Danny Williams says he takes full responsibility for retaining an advertising firm to stoke the province's pride in the Atlantic Accord deal without publicly tendering the contract for the work.From a Bruce Cheadle CP report that moved today:
"This is not a self promotion advertising campaign. You will see from the ads put out, there's no pictures of the minister or the premier. This is an ad campaign to try and reaffirm and entrench and solidify pride."
Prime Minister Stephen Harper is justifying the more than $100 million his government has spent on economic advertising by pointing to Canadians' confidence in the economy.
Harper responded that "Canadians understand and are very proud of the fact that Canada's economy has performed so much better than other developed countries during these challenging times."
