  • Robert Metz: What To Do About The GST?

    Murray HopperIn recognition of Ontario's latest increase in the legislated minimum wage on October 1, 1989, Freedom Party's Murray Hopper was invited to participate in a published debate on the merits of minimum wage laws. Opposing Hopper's free market viewpoint was United Church minister Susan Eagle, who advocated more government intervention in the marketplace. The articles were featured on the front page of the Forum section of the London Free Press, and readers were invited to phone or write their views to the paper; their responses were featured the following week. In addition to the immediate responses printed by the Free Press, the debate carried on in the paper's editorial pages over the weeks that followed.

    Hopper's case against minimum wage laws represented his third published essay in the London Free Press, and like his previous two essays on controversial subjects (on free market education and pay equity) has generated a great deal of interest in the party and the ideas we are working to promote.

    Hopper's and Eagles viewpoints are reproduced following. We invite you to decide for yourself.
