Back in the summer during the Ontario byelections, former Chretien Liberal staffer Warren Kinsella complained federal Conservative staffers were helping provincial Conservatives.
And yet, now in November during the federal byelections, here are some provincial Liberals helping out the federal Liberals:

I found it odd when the Ontario Liberals released an ad that started with Wynne admitting "I love running."
And sure enough, here's the Ontario PC's slight tweak to the Wynne ad:
