When it comes to Ontario’s 2022 provincial election now under way, it appears that there are more politicians wanting the freedom to party than there are who want a party to freedom.

Considering the number of political parties now registered in the province of Ontario, it’s alarming to realize that only one is a party to freedom. That party is the Freedom Party of Ontario (FPO) and its leader Paul McKeever (also FPO’s candidate in London North Centre) joins us to describe why this is so.

Along the way, Paul offers a history of Freedom Party and of the Ontario government’s persistent manipulation of the electoral system – and of political parties – since FPO’s founding in 1984.

On the federal front it’s much the same story, where the only party to freedom is the People’s Party of Canada (PPC). Past PPC candidate for London West, Mike McMullen, joins us to describe why he also feels comfortable now running as a provincial 2022 candidate for Freedom Party in his same riding.

Having participated in provincial candidate debates, both Paul and Mike have noticed how any discussion of the government’s pandemic response over the past few years is being entirely avoided by the other parties, and how they’re all desperately pretending it’s politics as usual. Most noticeable is the absence of any Progressive Conservative (PC) candidates at the debates, particularly given that the ruling PC party is the party most responsible for the government’s mishandling of the entire pandemic controversy.

Calling for the government to be held accountable for its incredible violations of individual freedom during the past few years is a key objective of Freedom Party’s 2022 election platform appropriately titled: Truth Rights Justice Freedom.

It’s also why, as the party’s own literature proclaims, Freedom Party is Ontario’s only party that’s “Just Right for Ontario.”

The Free State Project has become a freedom success story in the United States. Stemming from an essay by Professor Jason Sorens, now of St. Anselm College, which proposed that in a state with a population of about 1 million, a critical mass of only 20,000 freedom activists could shape the politics, laws, and culture of that area into one more accepting of, and conducive to, individual freedom.

Derek Proulx, an active volunteer of the Free State Project, joins Just Right Media’s Robert Vaughan to discuss the movement’s many success stories and how other states and provinces in the U.S. and Canada can benefit from their journey in the right direction.

758 – Man of the people | Maxime Bernier

“We need an ideological revolution,” recommends our guest Maxime Bernier, leader of the People’s Party of Canada (PPC).

As a former member of the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) who narrowly (and suspiciously) lost a CPC leadership bid, Bernier served as Minister of Foreign Affairs and as chairman of the Committee on National Defense. So when he says that the CPC is “intellectually and morally bankrupt,” his observation is based on direct experience.

“It’s not our war,” says Bernier about the situation in Ukraine. Calling for diplomatic negotiation instead of military escalation, he has found that this view has become an unacceptable discussion point in Canada, where the Trudeau government is forcing Canadian taxpayers to fund the very escalation he fears.

Sadly, reaching Canadians with news about the PPC or its take on the issues has become an uphill struggle. In a country whose fourth estate has been transformed into a taxpayer-funded propaganda machine, the odds of any objective reporting about the PPC or its leader from this media are remote indeed.

Because he has wisely refused to take state-mandated injections, Bernier has been prohibited from travelling freely within his own country. Consequently, Bernier has joined with former Newfoundland premier Brian Peckford (one of the original framers of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms) to file a lawsuit against the Trudeau government’s violation of everyone’s constitutional right to travel in Canada.

No one, let alone a leader of a national party, should ever be subject to travel restrictions or injection mandates. In the face of the Left’s contempt for individual freedom, Bernier’s style of “doing politics differently” becomes a necessity. Of course, everyone already knows that being Just Right is about as different from how politics is done today as it gets.

During his tour of Canada’s Maritime Provinces, I was honoured to have a conversation with People’s Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier.

Maxime is perhaps the only Western politician calling for peace and prosperity in Ukraine and asks that the two warring parties continue negotiations to end the conflict.

We also talked about the effectiveness of Canada’s Senate in revoking the Emergencies Act, the defunding of the CBC and an end to all subsidies to media including advertising funds, the irrationality of Justin Trudeau’s and Jagmeet Singh’s measures on travel for those not “vaccinated,” and the prospect for the publishing of his book “Doing Politics Differently.”

757 – Putting freedom on the ballot

“I’ve been offside with public opinion,” confessed Ontario’s MPP Randy Hillier in announcing his decision to withdraw from Ontario politics early in March. Concluding that Ontario is being ruled “by the mob,” Hillier cited the sad fact that it was many members of the public “who encouraged our government to take these excessive (Covid) measures to allay their fears.”

As someone who had recently planned to form his own Ontario political party to field candidates in the June 2 Ontario election –now under way – the reasons for his decision to entirely withdraw from the political arena are chilling and warrant everyone’s attention.

“I’ve come to the conclusion that there is no political solution to what ails society,” Hillier lamented. “The only way back to a free country is if we re-engage with the public and help shape public opinion – help people understand the value of freedom.”

Hillier’s advice is right on the money. As Ontarians head into the 2022 election, there is a level of hostility towards freedom greater than at any other time in the nation’s history. Electorally, this does not bode well for any candidates or political parties calling for freedom, but at the same time it demonstrates the need to “shape public opinion – help people understand the value of freedom.”

It seems self-evident that before winning freedom through the ballot box, it must first exist in the hearts and minds of voters themselves. Less evident is the price that must be paid to make this happen. It requires those who love freedom – more than they fear losing elections – to use electoral opportunities to campaign for freedom even against the odds.

As things look right now, it may be a long time indeed before conditions in Ontario are Just Right to result in freedom through the ballot box, but it’s always the right time to put freedom ‘on’ the ballot.

“Essentially, thousands of people have been killed by the direct actions taken by their governments. And we go out of that straight into this conflict in Ukraine, (but) who are the ‘good guys’ now? Who are any of us – as nations – to stand up and call out tyranny anymore? We’ve all embraced tyranny!”

Powerful words – from a cartoonist whose images invoke even greater power. That’s why our guest, British cartoonist Bob Moran, is now part of the ‘independent media’ where he has been freed to express his view of the truth.

As a former cartoonist with The Telegraph, the power and influence of Moran’s work was demonstrated by that paper’s dismissing him for expressing opinions inconsistent with the paper’s tyrannical narrative. Now through the Democracy Fund, Moran has dedicated himself to making his cartoons available for free in an effort to broaden awareness of the true political, moral, and social crisis in which we find ourselves.

As to the power of art itself, Ayn Rand once described its source this way:

“Metaphysics – that science that deals with the fundamental nature of reality – involves man’s widest abstractions. It includes every concrete he has ever perceived, it involves such a vast sum of knowledge and such a long chain of concepts that no man could hold it all in the focus of his immediate conscious awareness. Yet he needs that sum and that awareness to guide him – he needs the power to summon them into full, conscious focus. That power is given to him by art.” (Ayn Rand, Art and Sense of Life)

Thus the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” proves Just Right since images have the power to accelerate an awareness of the truth in a way that words alone cannot.

In an era of massive violations of individual rights by tyrannical governments around the world British cartoonist, Bob Moran’s work has become iconic for the freedom movement. His artwork both pokes fun at the political elites while revealing their true nature as despots.

He has recently teamed up with The Democracy Fund, a Canadian charity promoting the cause of individual rights and freedom.

Robert Vaughan spoke with Mr. Moran about The Democracy Fund, his political motivations, and his influence on a culture in decline and in desperate need of positive imagery and inspirational humour.
