Whitby-Ajax provincial by-election

Freedom Party Leader Launches
Whitby-Ajax by-election Campaign

McKeever's Campaign Slogan: Lower Taxes, A Better Life


March 1, 2006, Whitby-Ajax - Freedom Party of Ontario leader Paul McKeever today launched his by-election campaign as the Freedom Party candidate in the Ontario provincial riding of Whitby-Ajax.  A by-election was today called for that riding to fill the seat vacated by now federal conservative MP Jim Flaherty.

McKeever's campaign slogan is as bold as it is frank: Lower Taxes, A Better Life.  

McKeever will be campaigning primarily on two of the key plank's in Freedom Party's 2007 Election Platform:

1. REPLACING PROPERTY TAXES WITH A MUNICIPAL CONSUMPTION TAX:

"I will work to scrap property taxes", says McKeever.  "You should pay for what you use, not pay to keep what you already own."

2. SCRAPPING THE PROVINCIAL INCOME TAX & LEGALIZING FASTER, BETTER HEALTH CARE.

"I will work to legalize faster, better health care by ending Ontario's ban on private health insurance" says McKeever.  "Nobody should be forced to buy OHIP: the provincial income tax should be scrapped.  You should have a choice: buy public health insurance (OHIP), buy private health insurance, or just pay as you go."

Voters and media can obtain more information about McKeever's by-election campaign (including photos and logos for publication by media) by visiting Paul McKeever's campaign website:
