Vaughan Working Families, a mysterious group that ran full-page ads attacking Ontario's teachers earlier this year, violated Ontario's elections act by failing to register as a third-party advertiser, Elections Ontario says.

According to Global News, Elections Ontario released a statement Wednesday that says the advertiser, which ran ads attacking Ontario's teachers unions during rotating strike action, contravened the Elections Financing Act by failing to register.

Advertiser linked to deep-pocketed donors: Vaughan Working Families' ads were posted in early February without a website or any contact info and with a picture of a Polish stock photo model whose husband adamantly denied she had any knowledge of Ontario politics.
