There appears to be an early candidate for the worst election ad – and the vote hasn’t even been called yet.
The Conservatives have released an ad superimposing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s face into the Gene Wilder classic, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
But some prominent conservatives are giving it the thumbs down.
“Please tell me – @CPC_HQ that someone hacked your account and this is not an actual ad for your party,” tweeted former Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall.
Wall served as premier from Nov, 21, 2007 until Feb, 2, 2018.
Trudeau is expected to ask Governor-General Mary Simon on Sunday to dissolve Parliament and call for an election on September 20, despite the country being in a fourth wave of COVID-19.
