Liberal leader Stéphane Dion was asked on CTV's Canada AM this morning what it's like to be belittled in a concerted personal campaign of anti-Dion Conservative advertising.
Dion said he is overcoming it during the election campaign because he's getting a chance to speak directly to the Canadian people. But, he observed: "Never has an individual been attacked by so many millions of dollars of attack ads than me."
Then CTV interrupted the interview for a couple of ads. You guessed it - one of them was the Conservative ad that tries to depict Dion as an ineffective ditherer and uses newspaper headlines to question his ability to manage Canada's economy.
