Canada Proud paying people to wear banana costumes, push anti-Trudeau campaign

From CTV: https://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/canada-proud-paying-people-to-wear-banana-costumes-push-anti-trudeau-campaign-1.4470049

The national iteration of the anti-Liberal social media group Ontario Proud launched earlier this year with the focus of seeing Liberals and Trudeau defeated in the October federal election.

Part of this campaign has been the creation of a website and hashtag #TrudeauIsBananas. The webpage produced by Canada Proud states that before the federal election, voters should question "if he's ripe for another term," offers a limited "unpeeling" of Trudeaus record, and includes an acrostic poem of sorts, claiming Trudeau "builds absolutely nothing, anytime near anything."

According to an email obtained by CTV News sent by the "experiential marketing" firm Tigris Events that Canada Proud has hired to organize this event, the group will be paying a dozen "brand ambassadors" to distribute flyers, and encourage people to engage with the ongoing social media campaign, practically across the street from the Prime Minister's Office.

"This campaign is intended to be a lighthearted, tongue-in-cheek approach to politics. It uses facts and poses questions to shed light on some of Trudeau's policies and decisions. Itís not meant to be a nasty smear campaign," reads the pitch sent by Tigris looking for participants.

Can Ontario Proud/Canada Proud just go away, yet? I'd love for that loose congealing of white supremacists and fascists to just flush itself down Hogsback Falls.
