- M E D I A   R E L E A S E –


This week officially marks the beginning of Kathleen Wynne's new Liberal cabinet and government. Will it also mark a return to the classical liberal values of limited and less intrusive government?

Could it mean the return of Ontario as the economic engine of Canada, and the reversal of the policies that have made Ontario a have-not province since the Liberals came to power?  Or will this be a continuation of Dalton McGuinty's vision for Ontario: borrow, tax and spend? A vision that has created a massive debt obligation, for this and future generations. "It's easy to borrow heavily and say you have done great things," said Allen Small, Leader of the Ontario Libertarian Party, "but Ontario's finances are a mess, and according to the Fraser Institute, Ontario's debt load is 67% larger than California's, the most indebted of the American States."

Libertarians genuinely want to help Ms. Wynne, so we have released a new platform, that if adopted would increase choice and economic freedom for Ontarians, while allowing for an orderly transition toward limited government. Our platform is unique in Ontario, as we are the only party truly championing limited government and economic freedom.

The Current Libertarian Platform is divided into five planks, each one to be presented in the coming days and weeks:

1. Education: Smarter & Inspiring

2. Energy: Cheaper & Abundant

3. Healthcare: Faster & Efficient

4. Jobs: Secure & Rewarding

5. Budget: Lower & Simplified

There are many other aspects of government that must be addressed, including the larger question that asks, “why is government involved in so many facets of commerce and daily life in Ontario?”

We wish the new cabinet well, and we invite them to steal our ideas liberally.

The Ontario Libertarian Party has been a registered political party since 1975. We advocate free markets, property rights, limited government, and voluntary interactions within communities between individuals and groups. Contact: info@libertarian.on.ca
