PG Citizen runs full-page front-page ad for mayoral candidate day before election

November 18, 2011

I regret I don’t have time to do a full post on this, but either way, this seems very, umm…., strange.

The Prince George Citizen’s front page for Nov. 18 apparently looked like this:

That’s a muddy image (courtesy of Andrew Kurjata’s twitter feed), but here’s what it shows: a full-page, front-page ad ad for a mayoral candidate. Furthermore, as the CBC’s Betsy Trumpener reported on Twitter, there was no slug explaining it as such. Find images of the inside pages here.

I can only imagine what the paper’s editors and reporters think of this. It’s so, so crazy, it’s barely worth commenting on.  As it happens, I don’t have time to do so, so it’s over to you. Leave a comment.

    I just looked at the website for the paper. It doesn’t appear to be the front page of the entire paper…perhaps a section?
