Of all the mistakes the Tories made during the election campaign, perhaps the TV ad that featured Jean Chretien's face was the biggest. 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.
