The NDP launched another set of TV election ads Thursday that criticize Progressive Conservative Leader Hugh McFadyen – but allow he's got good taste in clothes.
One ad that started airing this week features a fictional McFadyen in a job interview to be Manitoba’s next premier.
After he walks out the door they talk about the supposed risks the province would face if he forms the next government.
They agree to turn down his application.
The punch line?
"Nice suit, though."
McFadyen and his wife Jennifer said Thursday they saw the ad Monday evening when it first aired and had a good laugh.
At the 3rd Annual Buchwald Memorial Luncheon hosted by the International Academy of Cardiovascular Sciences today, McFadyen joked the grey suit he was wearing was bought at Tip Top for $125.
"They might have thrown in a tie, too," he said.
