Like their federal counterparts, the Ontario Liberals freely distribute money to their pals for expensive advertising work. Word is out that McGuimpy and his gang have paid Bensimon Byrne, a Liberal-friendly advertising firm, $219,000 to design a new Ontario trillium logo. Liberal-friendly sign and stationary makers are applauding the change.
Comrades, the ruling party is spending your entitlement on government awareness. Don't complain.
Government Services Minister Gerry Phillips defended the logo revamp, saying it wouldn't cost taxpayers much since stationery, government documents and signs will be replaced gradually over the course of years.Mack the Plain Little Turtle has the inside story:
Word has it that the estate of the late Colonel Sanders is about to sue for trademark infringement by the government of Ontario (Canada). Ontario, which announced yesterday that it has spent $219,000.00 for a redesign of the provincial government's trillium flower label, is alleged to have simply cut and paste it from a special part of the the stylized artwork of the Colonel's face, found on the side of the Colonel's chicken packaging: his facial hair.
