On October 4 and 5, 1986, Freedom Party held a workshop for its members and supporters at the then Park Lane Hotel at 186 King Street in London, Ontario. Titled the “Art of Political Persuasion Workshop”, the workshop was led by political advisor Michael Emerling (a.k.a., Michael Cloud). It was Emerling’s first workshop for Freedom Party of Ontario (the second being held in 1989). The workshop originally had been planned and marketed as a two-day event and those two days were video taped in their entirety. However, on Day 1 of the workshop, Emerling explained that he had more material than he could get through in two days, so he offered to extend the workshop by two additional days (October 6 and 7) at no additional cost. The workshop was moved to Freedom Party’s then-headquarters at 364 Richmond Street (3rd floor), in London, Ontario, for the latter two days of the workshop. No recordings of the October 6 and 7 proceedings are known to exist (Robert Metz believes they might have been recorded on a reel-to-reel audio tape recorder).

The video recordings of the first two days of the 1986 workshop are here broken into a total of 6 videos:
