From the own-ad hating Conservative files...

The latest high-profile Conservative to speak-out against their nasty negative attack ads is Luc Harvey, who will soon have lots of company as a former Conservative MP from Quebec:

Luc Harvey, the only Conservative to lose a seat in the federal election, says his party isn't doing enough to explain to voters what's being done to address the economic crisis.

"That leaves the opposition with the opportunity to define the government," said Harvey, now a business owner.

Some of the money poured into an expensive ad campaign aimed at softening Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff's numbers might have been better directed at selling Conservative policy in Quebec, Harvey said.

"The Conservative party has ads to try and define Michael Ignatieff, but on the other hand they let the opposition define the government on policy, and I think right now the opposition is more effective than the ads, at least in Quebec."
