Explore New Possibilities!

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.

Electric Power is too important for politics:

- M E D I A   R E L E A S E -

The recent ice storm demonstrates how a bad situation is made worse by politics. Such weather related power outages are inevitable in Ontario given our location. Just as inevitable, is the fact that government-mandated hydro monopolies are prone to political interference and mismanagement. They must be broken up. Competition must be encouraged if we are to have an affordable and reliable supply of electricity.

Last week former US Vice President Al Gore gave a speech in Toronto commending the Ontario Liberal government for closing (soon) all OPG coal powered generation stations and banning the use of coal in Ontario. Ostensibly this was done to achieve health benefits and mitigate global warming.
On Nov. 25 the Minister of the Environment, Jim Bradley, issued a press release extolling the virtues of the coal plant closings.

The Ontario Libertarian Party has a booth reserved at Word on the Street (WOTS) in Toronto. This will be our fifth year at WOTS representing the Party. For 24 years WOTS has attracted thousands of educated, affluent, professionally influential individuals from across Toronto and the GTA. Is it possible that among this group some may support the libertarian cause? That’s what we are attempting to find out.

Our list of Libertarian Pub Nights in this issue includes three new ones in Belleville, Burlington and Sudbury.  This issue also contains several Media Releases issued in the last three months   We provide a proposal to counter the Metrolinx plan to add more taxes, disguised as "Revenue Tools."  Premier Kathleen Wynne's first budget does nothing to reduce the deficit and the burden on the next generation. Leader Allen Small expands on our platform planks for Health Care, Jobs, and taxes.
