Attack ads - WTF?

I don't own a TV, so I don't watch TV and thus I'm a bit behind the times.  However, last night I went to meet a friend in a pub (that's been a very rare occurrence over the past few years as well, BTW).  I was a few minutes early, so I watched a bit of TSN on the big screen until he arrived.  And lo and behold, there was that infamous Justin Trudeau 'over his head' ad.

There is no federal election campaign on right now.  The next election is over a year away (unless our dear leader decides to change the rules again).  So why is the CPC running campaign-style ads attacking the character of a prominent Member of Parliament?  This is just wrong.
