Seriously, here is the clip.
Then, on a day for analysis of the Liberal platform, who does good old Duff have appear on the show? Michael Percy to analyze the cost of the platform and Sanjeev Anand to analyze the Tories' tough on Crime announcement.
With all due respect though Duff, are these the only two "experts" in Canada you could find? Both from the University of Alberta, a bastion of Conservative think tanks. Percy went out of his way to talk about the tar sands and how well Alberta and Saskatchewan are doing.
Then Duff brings up Darryl Plecas on his 8:00 show. You might remember Plecas, he was appointed by the Conservatives to the board of the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse.
Two interesting excerpts:
But Plecas, who generally supports tougher sentences, said he's doubtful.
Last October, for instance, the government named B.C. criminologist Darryl Plecas of the University College of the Fraser Valley to the board of the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse. While Plecas has no obvious Tory ties, he is an outspoken advocate of tougher jail sentences - an approach warmly received in Conservative circles.
Is this responsible journalism? Me thinks CTV has gone too far in their attempt to skew the issues.
