Faith Goldy’s video ad:
Google shut down Toronto mayoral candidate Faith Goldy’s online advertising campaign Saturday, just 48 hours before polls opened.
On Saturday, October 20, just 48 hours before polls opened, Google informed Goldy that her entire online advertising campaign, which included video, search result, and banner advertisements, had been shut down.
“We’ve confirmed that your account is in violation of our Google Ads policies. Since this decision is final, the account will not be reinstated,” wrote Google to Goldy in an email. “Please avoid creating additional Google Ads accounts, as they will be subjected to the same suspension. Our support team will not be able to give you any more specifics on the suspension.”
Goldy, who ran a “Canada First” campaign for the mayoral election, publicly opposed illegal immigration, and promised to “launch a Special Research Desk on Islamic Extremism to monitor finances in and out of Toronto Islamic centres” should she be elected.
“Voting commenced Monday at 10am, we got the notice [of ad suspension] late on Saturday night,” declared Goldy to Breitbart Tech, adding that an appeal was impossible until Google’s offices opened again on Monday, the day of the election.
“Americans should pay attention because Google is pioneering tactics in Canada which will be used against patriots south of the border come 2020,” Goldy proclaimed. “Big tech is interfering with a democratic election based on political bias and that should be deeply troubling to every candidate and voter committed to democratic values.”
