I originally came to post this because I assumed it was a fake, but there's a quote from Hudak defending this:

“The notion that Dalton McGuinty thinks a priority in education is sex-education curriculum starting at Grade 1 when they should be learning their ABCs and how to tie their shoes is another example of how Dalton McGuinty has lost touch with mainstream Ontario.”

The best part is how non-contextual these quotes are. The kissing booth quote is for grades 7-12 and "in the booth, students and staff are greeted by students who place a stamp of a kiss on their cheek and a few chocolate kisses in their hand".

This is just days after the National Post ran this ad:



This is almost so badly-designed to be funny, but the real humour is that the National Post [a well-known right-wing paper] apologized for it - and then the next day Toronto's largest tabloid the Toronto Sun ran it as well, and have yet to apologize.

(If anyone was still thinking of Canada as this wonderful place where everyone is accepted, hopefully this has cured you of that.)
