Libertarian Meetups across Ontario

Libertarian Pub Nights and Events Calendar

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

Bring a friend. Everyone is welcome. Hope to see you there!
