On February 8, 2007, the governing Liberal Party of Ontario lost a seat to the socialist New Democratic Party. York South-Weston is, statistically, the second poorest riding in Ontario, and the NDP’s success in the by-election was widely attributed to its proposal to raise Ontario’s minimum wage from $8 per hour to $10 per hour.

To avoid losing more seats to the NDP, the governing Liberal Party has said that poverty is a central issue in the coming October 10, 2007 general election.

March 22, 2007 was budget day in Ontario, and Greg Sorbara, Ontario’s Minister of Finance, announced that Ontario’s minimum wage would increase by 75 cents per year over the next three years, bringing the minimum wage to $10.25 by 2010.

The leader of Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition, John Tory (leader of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario) has, in recent months, agreed with the idea that Ontario’s minimum wage must be increased.

In this episode of FPTV, Freedom Party of Ontario leader Paul McKeever explains why increasing the minimum wage would be both immoral and economically hazardous…particularly to employees in Ontario. Continue reading »

These two recordings were found, back to back, on a cassette tape, sandwiched between a recording dated August 13, 1986, and another dated September 8, 1986. Only the two excerpts were recorded, so we cannot know the specific topic being discussed, but it appears the question under discussion was whether Canada should be open to immigration. Freedom Party member Gord Mood and Freedom Party president Robert Metz each given an emphatic “yes”, and point out that a lot of the racism and anti-immigration sentiment is actually caused by bad government policy in respect of social programs.

1985-xx-xx.mood-peterson-thumbAUDIO – DESCRIPTION:

On June 12, 1985, David Peterson (then leader of the Ontario Liberal Party and premier-in-waiting) was a guest of the Wayne McLean talk show. Topics covered: taxpayer funding for the Pan-Am Games; facilities for women; contracts with hospital workers; extra-billing for health care services; Ontario Hydro debt; funding for Catholic high schools; de-indexing of pensions; beer and wine in corner stores; a bill on status Indians; difference between the Liberals and NDP; minimum wage laws; tuition fees and high grades needed to attend university; and a domed stadium for Toronto.

At the 36:15 point in the recording, Freedom Party of Ontario’s Gord Mood calls in and asks for difference between Liberals and NDP. Peterson says that the NDP are socialists and the Liberals are not. He then asks Gord the difference between the socialists and Premier Miller. Mood replies that Miller apparently has caved-in to the radical left within and without of his party. Gord then asks about wanting to work for less than the minimum wage: is it better for him not to work than to work at less than the minimum? Peterson says that Gord seems to be trying to catch him in a logical trap.
