- M E D I A   R E L E A S E -

The Ontario Libertarian Party is proud to announce that it is fielding candidates in each of the five by-elections proclaimed by Premier Kathleen Wynne for August 1, 2013.

The candidates are:

Dan Dominato √           -- in Windsor-Tecumseh

Geoffrey Serbee √       -- in London West

Jean-Serge Brisson √  -- in Ottawa South

Prof. Hans Kunov √     -- in Etobicoke-Lakeshore

Heath Thomas √         -- in Scarborough-Guildwood

These five people deserve a great deal of credit. It takes a special kind of person to stand up against long odds and represent an ideal. They deserve our admiration and gratitude for their courage.

In the politics of Ontario, the Libertarian Party represents political ideas that are part of our heritage, yet have long vanished from popular public discourse, namely: limited government and personal choice.

Unlike any of the other parties in the Ontario Legislature, the Libertarian Party takes a principled approach as to what are the proper functions of government. This comes at a time when people are beginning to appreciate that governments are not the solution to all our social problems; in fact government frequently is the problem.

Recently the party has grown in both membership and stature, but it is still unrecognized by much of the population of Ontario. These five by-elections represent for the Libertarian Party a mini-full slate. Ultimately the Party aspires to an entire full slate across the province in a general election.

The efforts of our five candidates and their helpers will go a long way to achieving the goal of a full slate.

We have no doubt that these efforts will strengthen this grass-roots movement that will eventually see the Libertarian Party with sitting members of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. 

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
