New Democrats are launching an offensive on incumbent Liberals who voted in favour of Bill C-51, the Conservative government’s controversial anti-terror legislation.
The move was planned for Saturday because it marks exactly 51 days until election day.
According to The Toronto Star, NDP candidates will target dozens of ridings held by Liberals with brochures accusing Justin Trudeau and his team of failing to defend civil liberties — and failing to stand up to Stephen Harper.
The NDP’s official Twitter account kicked things off with an aggressive jab at Trudeau Saturday.
