Libertarian Meetups in Ontario

Libertarian Pub Nights and Events Calendar

Come by and meet flesh and blood libertarians at one of our monthly “dinner” meetings in Ontario. We promise not to bite non-libertarians who want to find out more about our philosophy, but we do promise a vigorous debate for anyone who challenges our ideas.
