The Alberta Teachers' Association has launched a new series of TV ads as part of their Budget More campaign calling on the Stelmach Tories to address the conditions in Alberta's Education system.

Good ad.

I can't believe they actually used the "up hill to school for 5 kms" joke. That kind of throws the whole thing off. Is it serious or is it a joke?

Cliche is never convincing. Old jokes are not like good is a pleasure to revisit good music. It actually hurts to hear an old joke again and again and again.

Too cute. Not too creative. Deflects the message. It mocks the seriousness of the issue.

The ATA should ask for its money back from the people who produced this stuff.

Can you have this stop auto-playing when we visit the site, please Dave? I think most of us have seen it at this point and it's annoying to have it blast at us each time we visit.

Thanks. I am planning to look at the code but haven't had a chance yet. I'll try to take a look tomorrow.
