Preview Clip

While the picture focused on a facial disability the Liberal leader had since childhood, a woman's voice said she'd be embarrassed to vote for him. The ad was condemned by almost everyone, including some Tory MPs. Chretien said the Tories sunk to a new low by making fun of his appearance.
