On October 29, 2016, Freedom Party held a dinner in London, Ontario at the Best Western Lamplighter Inn. The theme of the dinner: Embracing Climate Change. The dinner’s MC, Robert Vaughan, recognized certain honoured guests (including former party leader Lloyd Walker, and authors Dave Plum and Scott Williams-Oakes), and recognized the recent passings of Ray Monteith (FPO candidate and supporter), Wayne Forbes (FPO candidate and supporter), and Jack Plant (former party leader). FPO party leader Paul McKeever then presented Dr. Christopher Essex (the Guest Speaker of the dinner) with a Freedom 200 pins for his contribution to the party. Vaughan then gave the party’s traditional Toast to Freedom. Following the meal, McKeever gave a short speech about government’s role in defending every individual’s freedom to pursue his own happiness, and about Freedom Party’s application of that principle to the issue of climate change: a Freedom government will stop all governmental efforts to fight the climate, and will instead adapt to the effects of climate change, as needed and appropriate. Thereafter, Professor Essex gave a compelling speech explaining the importance of not allowing ethics and politics to influence the interpretation or collection of the hard data of natural science. Robert Vaughan then gave a humourous closing comment before attendees mingled.

Metz followed the awards with a discussion about the importance of making a commitment to freedom through a commitment to Freedom Party. Next, Al Gretzky provided highlights from his experiences during and after the 2014 election. Salim Mansur discussed the fall of politics into the election of unqualified celebrities, and the importance of the sovereignty of the individual. FPO leader Paul McKeever explained how and why enemies of freedom attempt to make politics appear impersonal when actually, it is quite personal. Robert Vaughan then gave a closing comment before attendees mingled. Arnon Kaplansky unwittingly appears in the closing scene of the video.
