“Call it “socialized energy” or “energy care”: energy on the basis of need, not on the basis of ability to pay. In an interview on the globally-broadcasted radio program “Just Right” today, Freedom Party of Ontario leader Paul McKeever warned that that is the real purpose of the Kathleen Wynne government’s various “climate” policies – including cap-and-trade, ending natural gas home-heating, subsidizing electric cars and charting stations, etc…” Click here to read the full media release.

2013-05-06.mckeever-thumbAUDIO – DESCRIPTION:

Freedom Party of Ontario leader Paul McKeever is the guest of “The Andrew Lawton Show”, which airs beginning at 1:00 PM daily on AM980, in London, Ontario. The interview began at 1:35 PM.

The discussion was prompted by a November 2, 2013 CBC news report about Mr. Sam Lou, who has been a barber for 15 years. Pursuant to the Ontario College of Trades and Apprenticeship Act, 2009, hairdressing (which is deemed to include the work done by a barber) is currently the only service identified as a compulsory trade (compulsory in the sense that one must now be a member of the College of Trades in order to perform the work of a hairdresser or barber). Mr. Lou has been told that either he must learn the hairdressing techniques needed to style, perm, colour etc. a woman’s hair, or else he cannot be a member of the College of Trades. Having opened a barber shop one month ago, the government has just shut down his business. Another Barber, Mr. Frank Olszynko – who has been cutting hair since the 1960s – says that if he is fined for carrying on his barber work without membership in the College, he will refuse to pay the fine, and will fight it in court.

McKeever explains that, although the College of Trades must go, that is not the root of the problem. The problem is that government is preventing people from buying or selling services freely.

2007-05-21.fptv-11-thumbVIDEO – DESCRIPTION:
On long weekends, and at other times when demand for gasoline increases, gasoline prices often increase. Many politicians jump on this opportunity to allege “collusion” among gasoline companies, and to call prices increases “price gouging”.

On May 17, 2007 – the Thursday prior to the Victoria Day long weekend in Ontario – Ontario’s Progressive Conservatives (PCs) introduced a private members Bill (Bill 228, Gas Prices Notice Act, 2007) which would require gasoline companies to give consumers three days advance notice of any increase in gasoline prices. One day later, PC leader John Tory issued a press release stating he told gasoline companies that they “must” do a better job of “justifying” their prices.

In this episode of FPTV, Freedom Party of Ontario leader Paul McKeever discusses the injustice of calling the proper functioning of the price system “price gouging”, and explains how the PCs bill would actually cause consumers to force gasoline companies to sell fuel below cost: Bill 228 replaces alleged “price gouging” with patently obvious “fuel gouging”.
