Ignatieff hurt by Toronto Star photograph?
You be the judge. Today the Toronto Star published this image captured by photographer Rob Bull. It ran under the headline : The Glamour of the Federal Election Campaign.
The photograph features our Next Face candidate Michael Ignatieff shaking hands with a constituent at the entrance to a subway station in his Etobicoke-Lakeshore riding during the campaign, while less than 3 metres away a man relieves himself in plain view. Certainly the decision to run this photograph (which takes up half of the back page) doesn't help the prospective candidate, and could - according to Next Face - possibly hurt the new MP's chances in the run up to the leadership race.
It just doesn't look Prime Ministerial.
Ignatieff's odds fall today from 6:1 to 7:1.
