It was just another crappy day in February down by the lake. Blustery cold winds and an incoming barrage of freezing rain and snow, but after all it is Ontario and there was a job to do.
Our Party Leader, Mark Snow, had hit the road in the wee hours from his home in Eastern Ontario for the five-hour drive to Hamilton.
He arrived around 1100 hrs, (Mark is a Veteran, having served for 30 years) and set out to collect the required signatures to complete his nomination forms and ensure a Libertarian option on the ballot for the good people in the Electoral District of Hamilton Centre.
If you don't already know, there is a by-election being held on March 16th, 2023 to replace the former NDP leader who resigned her seat in the Ontario Legislature three weeks after announcing her intention to run for Mayor of Hamilton on July 26th, 2022. I could go into some detail about how this career socialist politician has played the calendar over 25 years to maximize her earnings but I digress.
Five-hours later, Mark had completed all the requirements, met with the Returning Officer, successfully got on the ballot and began the seven-hour drive back home as Mother Nature threw her nastiest offerings at him every kilometre along the way.
My point is this. Unlike the bigger parties who are able to fulfill the requirements with ease, Mark Snow and the Ontario Libertarian Party will do whatever it takes to spread our sensible message of Freedom. I'll be elaborating over the coming days leading up to the by-election, so be sure to visit again. Unless you've been involved in politics, I can pretty much guarantee I have a few eye-openers coming your way.
Thank you and have a great day!
Scott Marshall, Secretary
Ontario Libertarian Party
