THE CHEYENNE AVENUE SCANDAL
If you are a regular reader of Freedom Flyer you may have followed the chronicle of the persecution of London landlord Elijah Elieff at the hands of the Ontario Human rights Commission and the paid lobbyist Susan Eagle of the United Church of Canada. Thanks to the actions of Fp President Robert Metz in representing Mr. Elieff before the Ontario Human Rights Commission, the Commission findings were largely in favour of Mr. Elieff.
But the story hasn't ended yet. The Ontario Human Rights Commission has appealed the 1994 decision of the Board of Inquiry, which found no evidence to support a racism complaint against Mr. Elieff. And, to add insult to injury, when Fp member and past candidate Jim Montag filed a Freedom of Information request to determine the amount of taxpayers' money expended on this deliberate conspiracy to discredit a private citizen, he was told no such records existed!

FREEDOM PARTY IN THE NEWS
LONDON BOARD OF EDUCATION
As a trustee on the London Board of Education (and Freedom Party's first executive member elected to public office), Fp Executive member Robert Vaughan is still generating controversy and news coverage in a one man campaign for freedom of choice in education. As reported in a London Free Press article, Vaughan advocated surveying parents to determine whether they prefer phonics or "whole language" instruction, but the board stifled debate on the issue. Readers are warned that the description of "Whole language versus Phonics" in this article is a viewpoint that Freedom Party strongly disagrees with. For more information on "Whole language" instruction, read our publication Just say "know" to Whole Language.
Also in the pages of the London Free Press: Vaughan injects some common sense into the London Board of Education in his letter clarifying his opposition to the board's sex-education policies, objects to yet another unnecessary "gender equity" program in the school system, and bluntly says "so be it" to the potential prospect of the elimination of school boards.
