Is he saying the 600 million spent on buying the media in Canada is the same type of spending as has been happening for years?
Is a media bail out and budgeted ad spending the same thing?
Is spending on advertising going to end now that they have given the media 600 million dollars?
Why does he believe that the public think it’s okay that ‘many millions’ of taxpayers dollars are spent on advertising every year?
