The Ontario NDP is calling for an investigation into what it calls a series of anti-teacher advertisements that ran in three national newspapers over the weekend, but the government is already denying any involvement.

NDP ethics critic Taras Natyshak says the full-page advertisements violate the province's election spending rules with two byelections currently underway in several Ottawa-area ridings — meaning third party political advertisers cannot spend more than $4,000 on advertising.

"These ads cost much, much more than that," Natyshak said at a news conference Monday.
