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.

The Greater Toronto-Hamilton Region (GTHA) is one of the fastest growing regions in North America. Currently, Toronto is building more skyscrapers than any other city in the West. Along with this unprecedented construction is immigration, making the GTHA one of the most diverse regions in the world. That growth has created congestion during parts of the workday so that the average commute time in the region is 82 minutes per day, one of the worst in North America.

Ontario Budget 2013: Digging a deeper hole:

The May 2 Ontario Budget represents Kathleen Wynne's first budget as Premier, but will it be her last?

That's the $127.6 billion question. Will this budget be enough to placate the NDP and get their support to avert a late spring election? That is the central question around this budget. 

At first blush it appears that virtually all of the pre-budget demands of the NDP have been fulfilled in this document, effectively making it an NDP budget, so their support seems assured. We will know soon enough if they have been appeased.

You can please some of the people....Libertarian Platform Issues

You may have heard it said that libertarians agree on 95% of all issues, but fight tooth-and-nail over the remaining 5% (or is it 99% and 1%?). Its true, and I'm not the first to say that. However, the bickering and arguments over that 5% is often tedious, nit-picky, divisive and for me tiresome. Spend a few minutes in a libertarian Facebook discussion and you'll see libertarians are rarely of one mind.

Budget: Lower & Simplified

This is the fifth in a series of releases designed to introduce our new Campaign platform for 2013-14.

The impact of taxation and spending by government affects each and every person in Ontario and across Canada. Many people consider taxes as a necessary evil to maintain our civil society. But today taxes and spending by government greatly exceed what is required to maintain order in a civil society.

Healthcare: Faster & Efficient

This is the third in a series of releases designed to introduce our new Campaign platform for 2013-14.

Ontario’s healthcare professionals are second to none in the world, but they are burdened under a system that is broken. Past governments have created a centrally planned monopoly that inhibits new ideas and forbids competition while costs continue to balloon.
