A conservative political advocacy group has launched a TTC ad campaign urging federal politicians to ban Saudi Arabian oil imports.

With the campaign currently supported by radio spots, a mobile billboard and an ad-wrapped TTC streetcar, Ontario Proud founder Jeff Ballingall was surprised when CNW Group — a PR newswire service owned by Cision — refused distribution of their press release.

"The TTC and Pattison have okayed our content, Facebook okayed our content, Google okayed our advertisements," Ballingall said.
