Recent released Tory ads attacking Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff have failed to impress at least one Conservative MP.
Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo MP Cathy McLeod said she doesn't like the ads and would prefer to take the political high road.
She believes political parties use such tactics because they work, but she favours the political discourse to revolve around policy.
"Unfortunately, it seems the tactics have success or otherwise they wouldn't do this — but again do I like it, no," McLeod told KTW.
"I'm responsible for how I conduct myself and I haven't been able to change the world."
McLeod said she hopes these types of ads don't create public cynicism or turn off voters from going to the polls and getting engaged politically.
Expect a phone call Cathy, this freelancing and candor will not stand! If a Conservative MP isn't impressed, I wonder what her constituents think?
