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.

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:

Press Release


- M E D I A   R E L E A S E -

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 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.

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.
