During the 2011 election, Freedom Party of Ontario released its election platform one plank at a time, beginning October 12, 2010 (Affordable Electricity). The 18th and final plank (Separating Public Schools and Organized Religious Practice) was released on August 2, 2011. Each plank was announced with a media release, and each plank release was accompanied by the release of a pre-election commercial that was viewable only on the web. Each plank release was also accompanied by an audio recording, available only on the web, of Freedom Party leader Paul McKeever reading the plank for the voter’s convenience. Freedom Party maintained a 2011 Election Platform web page. As each plank was released, a link to the plank was added to the Platform page. On September 7, 2011 – the day that the election writ was dropped for the 2011 Ontario provincial election – Freedom Party released its 2011 election platform as the world’s first-ever election platform audiobook.

“As we drive to work this morning, many of us are wondering how we are going to pay our auto insurance bills. The evidence from Ontario and other jurisdictions is now clear: the no-fault system Ontario adopted in 1990 leads to skyrocketing premiums, and dwindling benefits. A 2011 election plank released today by Freedom Party of Ontario says a Freedom government would follow the lead of over a dozen other North American jurisdictions by ending Ontario’s failed experiment with no-fault auto insurance. A Freedom government would restore the pre-1990 full-tort system, under which an accident causes only the at-fault driver to suffer increased premiums…” Click here to read the full media release.
