Political parties or candidates are breaking the law if they buy provocative headlines on Internet news sites during election campaigns without declaring the expense and notifying the viewing public, says Elections Canada.

Elections Canada also bans third party advertising during elections. It could easily be argued therefore that if headlines can be advertising and third parties are not allowed to advertise during elections that any CBC, CTV, or Global headline during an election could be against the law. Who decides? Who decides which headlines are third party advertising vs. simple a headline? This could prove very interesting.

I would say if that's the case the next election will be full of complaints about the Leftist media...

Here in BC, during the last provincial election, the unions had more advertizing than either of the major political parties. Most of their ads were "attack style" against the Liberal Party of BC and Gordon Campbell personally. Strangely enough, they didn't say "Vote NDP" but they didn't hestitate to say "Don't Vote Liberal" which meant they didn't get called for third party advertizing.

Funny how these games get played out, isn't it?
