We believe in the right of individuals, families and communities to make their own informed decisions about issues affecting themselves directly.  Join us to help make this a reality.

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.

Allen Small

My name is Allen Small, a candidate in the riding of Markham-Unionville and the leader of the Ontario Libertarian Party.

I know Libertarian is not a household name yet.

But, if you're one of the more than 50% of eligible voters that did NOT vote in the last provincial election you may be interested in what I'm about to say.

My party is unique and different from the other political parties. 

First Nations and the Contraband Tobacco Crisis – a position

The website stopcontrabandtobacco.ca calls contraband tobacco a serious problem in Canada. According to the site contraband tobacco funds organized crime, threatens the viability of small businesses, and results in the loss of significant government tax revenue. The issue is made more complex because it involves the First Nations people and their special privileges in law with respect to tobacco.

 

Ontario College of Trades - a bad solution to a non-existent problem.

One year ago the Ontario government instituted the Ontario College of Trades (OCT). The mandate for this body is that it’s: “…an industry-driven, professional regulatory body that protects the public by regulating and promoting the skilled trades.”

I don’t recall any outcry from the public that demanded such an organization, and you probably don’t either, but here is the website.
