2. Leader's Message

 

Allen Small

"I believe that the people of Ontario should have greater control of their own lives, including greater economic and personal freedom. I'm confident that will result in greater prosperity for themselves and their families. One way this can be achieved is by reducing the size and scope of government. By supporting the Ontario Libertarian Party, you can help make this happen."

Winter Tires not compulsory

Fortunately McGuinty resisted the urge to tell us what’s good for us this time. In spite of the pleadings of the CAA and Ontario Safety League he refused to offer a tax credit for winter tires. http://www.cbc.ca/canada/toronto/story/2010/12/15/ontario-winter-tire-ta... Even better, he refused to pass a law requiring all cars to have winter tires, like Quebec.

Annual Liberty Seminar and General Meeting

A sell-out crowd attended our event and heard from three fascinating speakers.

Stefan Molyneux of Freedomain Radio advised that arguing from the morality of freedom would be more effective than arguing for effects of liberty. We may expect liberty to provide many improvements and benefits, but there will be some who will suffer when government stops providing benefits. Stefan posted a video of his presentation on YouTube.
