This is hilarious
The Sun Media editorialists decide to call up the toll-free number featured in the government's much-reviled Economic Action Plan advertisements. Result? "A polite receptionist referred us to the ministry of finance website Budget.gc.ca, explaining she didn't have a direct phone line for the EAP, nor was she aware of the Actionplan.gc.ca website, which we told her about." This is hardly surprising, considering a government poll found that basically nobody is paying attention to the ads except to hate them. So enough already, they say. This is "essentially an example of the government using public money to boast about its economic initiatives. If the Conservatives want to do that, they should do it with their own money." Amen.
