The Ontario Liberals say the Progressive Conservatives use of "fake news" videos as advertisements may violate campaign finance law and are calling for Elections Ontario to investigate the allegations.

"The Ford campaign may be using their fake news channel to skirt the Elections Finances Act by passing off their advertising as journalism," the Liberals said in a news release on Sunday, referring to PC Leader Doug Ford's campaign team.

"In trying to pass off political advertising as media coverage the Conservative campaign is not just misleading Ontarians, it may be running afoul of election laws," it continues.
