The latest pre-election political attack ad towards Premier Christy Clark includes a pink hard hat, photo opportunity power up and school closure bonus.
The B.C. Federation of Labour ad is a nod to the Mario Brothers video game but its humour focuses on the Premier.
In the game, Premier Clark’s cartoon counterpoint get points during photo opportunities and school closures.

The video titled “Christy Clark’s Game” ends with a black screen and the words “new players?”
“Christy Clark has been playing us long enough. On May 9th, tell her it’s game over,” a voice plays over top.
In response to the ad, Clark says, “I’m glad they put me in a hard hat.”

There is no limit on pre-election ad spending for third parties.
With well over a month before campaigning officially begins, election nastiness is expected to heat up.
