2. Leader's Message

 

Allen Small

"I believe that the people of Ontario should have greater control of their own lives, including greater economic and personal freedom. I'm confident that will result in greater prosperity for themselves and their families. One way this can be achieved is by reducing the size and scope of government. By supporting the Ontario Libertarian Party, you can help make this happen."

3. It's time for a better Ontario

 

What do we stand for?

Our VISION is Communities of freedom, harmony, and abundance.
 
Our MISSION is to explore new possibilities through recognition of, respect for, and protection of individual liberty.

Many believe that people tend to be selfish and greedy, especially libertarians who say government should not be in the business of helping those in need and protecting us from voracious corporations.  In reality libertarians believe humans are social animals, and most adopt the "good neighbour" policy.  Gene Balfour provides an example of neighbours helping those whose homes were damaged in the spring floods.  In a second article he recommends that the government should give citizens more choices by allowing and encouraging competition for services currently provided by government-mandated monopolies. 

The Party is fortunate to have a retiree as our Leader.  Allen Small has adapted to social media like a duck to water and spends a lot of time creating posts every day on the Party's six FaceBook.pages.  He reports how his efforts have helped to grow the Party.  Our Fan Page reaches thousands of people daily.  Recently it received well over a million views.  

You likely know that BC recently held a general election. What you may not know is that the BC Libertarian Party ran 35 candidates and that CBC reported Libertarian votes.  Clayton Welwood, the Leader, reports on the progress of his Party. 

If you're looking for an opportunity to socialize with other libertarians, check out our schedule of Pub Nights.  We have monthly gatherings in Toronto, Ottawa and Kitchener-Waterloo, plus occasional gathering in places like Peterborough and Woodstock.

We provide a Media Release in response to the Ontario Budget, asking for a "Return to Common Sense." Campaign Director Rob Brooks recommends we stop speaking 'libertarian' to voters and speak common language if we hope to have them understand us. Scott Johnston sends a letter to Toronto city hall complaining about the damage the 'free' snow clearing service is doing to the sidewalks. Scott also comments on his concern that the government-run medical system could save money if people didn't live too long.

Libertarians only have it half right

When I discovered the OLP it was an epiphany. I am 60 now and hadn't felt such a rush since my first love. As I researched further the shine began to come off the apple. When I look back at my first love I now sing to myself, "she ain't pretty she just looks that way." To be brutally concise I feel libertarians disdain for big government power is to be applauded but they don't research the consequences of transferring that power to the private sector.
