Ontario Libertarians run record 74 candidates

First opportunity to form a government: Ontario Libertarian Party :: Wire Service Media:

May 25, 2014 - "For the first time ever the Ontario Libertarian Party is in a position to form a majority government. On June 13, 2014 only 5 people in Ontario could lead a majority government, including Libertarian Party Leader, Allen Small....

"In an email message to members of the party across Ontario, Allen Small said:....

"'In 2007, the party ran 25 candidates, in 2011, it was 51 - and now in 2014 we are running 74. This represents a 45% increase in candidates compared to 2011. More importantly, we have people in every region of the province, from Thunder Bay to North Bay, to Cornwall, to Windsor down to Niagara Falls. We have covered the map! Our new members and the influx of donations is very heart-warming for me and the entire team.'

"The Libertarian Party is unique and different from the other political parties.

"One key difference is Libertarians believe the problems created by governments cannot be solved with yet more government. Libertarians would limit the size and scope of government, resulting in lower taxes, and more social and economic freedom....

"Libertarians believe that the provincial government monopolies of medical care, education, electrical generation and transmission and alcohol sales need to be reviewed and revised. Libertarians would open each of these to competition."

    But your point is well taken, and I hope all Ontario Libertarians will remember: Election Day 2014 is June 12.
