THE WELLAND-THOROLD BYELECTION
THE CALENDAR OF INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM
THE CLARKSON BIA
Business Improvement Areas are nothing but forced associations in which their "members" have no choice whether or not to belong. Read all about Freedom Party's involvement in defeating BIAs and restoring representation in taxation in Ontario.
In this section: Read Fp's battle against Sunday shopping ads. The real issue behind the Sunday shopping controversy has nothing whatsoever to do with "shopping" or "Sundays". The real issue is freedom of choice!
To make this point perfectly clear to both sides in the debate, Freedom Party produced two versions of a full-page newspaper ad aimed at defining the issue for the public and politicians alike: "YES to FREEDOM of CHOICE in SUNDAY SHOPPING!". Click here for a 72 kilobyte GIF reproduction of the London Free Press ad or here for a text-only version. The second version of this ad was placed in the Welland Guardian Express in April 1988, by coincidence, a short time before the Welland-Thorold byelection (Coverage of this event elsewhere in this issue of Freedom Flyer.)
FREEDOM PARTY IN THE NEWS
In this section: Read the response written by the London Free Press Ombudsman to Fp Action Director Marc Emery's complaint of biased editorial coverage in the pages of the London Free Press. As a result of Emery's activity, the paper has taken his advice by publishing columns written by noted free-market advocates Walter Block (Beware insidious poisons of controls and wage laws) and Freedom Party's own Manager of Special Projects, Murray Hopper (Pay equity rules just don't coincide with market forces and Marketplace offers better education system). The latter column also appeared as the cover essay of Consent #5.
Freedom Party's famous "Journal of Ideas and Opinions on Individual Freedom" --- Consent --- is launched.
LETTERS TO Fp
Until recently, we never really received enough written letters to justify a letters column, but we've been saving them all the same.
The letters below have been received by Freedom Party over the past year or so; appropriate dates accompany each letter. From here on in, we'll be keeping them up to date.
