Hear from the man behind the decision to pull pro-Bernier anti-immigration billboards


We've gotten some very strongly worded and opinionated calls from members of the public who want to express their opinion as it relates to the messaging on the ad, and in some cases feel that, you know, Pattison is either advocating for the message, or in the case of our decision to remove the ads, advocating against the message. The initial response was from members feeling that the message on the ad was inappropriate and un-Canadian. Now we're getting calls from people who have a very strong opinion in favour of the ad and feel that we are infringing on the public's right to freedom of expression by having the ads removed.
