I agree, let's move on to talking about the idiot provincial NDP MPP who is introducing a motion to ban advertising of products aimed at children 13 years old and under. After all us parents need to be protected from being nagged by our kids to buy unhealthy products, and goodness knows we are incapable of making decisions on our own without a socialist telling us what we are allowed to buy for our kids.
Well much to my surprise, today's Record has a scathing editorial against this bill - Let them Advertise Cake:
...Unfortunately, the clumsy bit of nanny-state legislation he's pushing doesn't discriminate between good and bad, salubrious and debilitating. It would simply prohibit all commercial television ads for food or drink directed at children under age 13.
But the unintended consequence of Marchese's proposal would be that ads for healthy food would be banned along with those selling products that could cause health problems. That seems needless, foolish and counterproductive. And it's only one of many reasons to hope his legislation dies a quick, unlamented death...
Wow. Maybe there's still some hope for the Record's editorial board.
