Government Advertising is soft corruption.
There was a time when goverment advertising made sense. The anti smoking ads for example. However today I consider all goverment advertising as soft corruption even if it is non partisan. My reasoning is the ad agencies, newspapers, tv stations are getting paid. Its a subsidy that no longer belongs. In the case of the Harper goverment spending hundreds of millions to date, its thinly disguised partisan propaganda It should be banned.
