OTTAWA — A new law requiring online platforms to publish a digital registry of all political ads posted during the coming federal election campaign will apply only to paid advertisements.

And that leaves lots of room for parties and advocacy groups to find other innovative ways to get their messages out to voters, without regulation.

As guidelines issued by Elections Canada on Wednesday point out, the law does not apply to texts, emails or other private messages.
