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 time has come to repeal the legislation that mandates all Ontario teachers be a union member. Each teacher must be empowered with the right to choose whether or not to be associated in any manner whatsoever with a union. This right is the real basis of democracy but, somewhere in our political past, taken from our teachers and replaced by Union organizations that have lost their moral compass  and taken actions and positions that now reflects badly on the teaching profession as a whole.

Bill 115: IS EDUCATION AN ESSENTIAL SERVICE?

- M E D I A   R E L E A S E -

By removing the right to strike from teachers with Bill 115, the government is treating them the same as police and firemen, in essence, declaring public education an essential service. Given that the vast majority of families have no choices in where or how their children are educated, this is a logical step. If education is not an essential service, one must ask why the government is providing it. 

Union strikes as a property rights issue.

One of our Facebook readers was confused about how union strikes as a property rights issue.  Here is how I see it.... 

All successful businesses [aka 'employers']  require, among other things, labour in order to produce the goods and/or services that generate business revenues. To acquire this labour, they create jobs and run employment competitions to find and hire the "best fit" job candidates at free market prices. These jobs are the property of the business owner as is the money from which wages are paid.
