Ontario Libertarian Party candidate for the September 6, 2012 Kitchener-Waterloo byelection, Allan Dettweiler, is scheduled to be on Exposing Faux Capitalism with Jason Erb, August 19 at 1 PM Eastern.
I first wrote about him in my August 11 article, Corporate Feudalist media omits alternative voting options in September 6, 2012 Kitchener-Waterloo byelection, after I had discovered that the Waterloo Region Record had omitted him in a list of candidates, despite a press release from the party the day before an article.
Was the Record really unaware of him, or are they less capable of basic research than me?
A subsequent omission of him in another article that day shows it was no accident.
In fact, the Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce deliberately didn’t invite an independent candidate and Ontario Freedom Party candidate in the 2011 election, and their plan is to exclude Dettweiler from the debate in this byelection.
Why are these organizations so intent on keeping their readers and viewers from finding out about him and his libertarian principles?
Is it because he might point out, as I did, Waterloo City Council’s mixed message on property rights? Under the Canadian Constitution, the provincial governments have exclusive jurisdiction over property, and an act of the Ontario Parliament could put a stop to the redistributive policies being floated by the Council.
Or is it because he might point out, as I did, Ontario PC leader Tim Hudak’s KW byelection hypocrisy?
They know that the so-called four major party candidates won’t bring up these embarrassing issues.
For an uncensored discussion of issues relevant to Kitchener-Waterloo residents and other freedom-loving individuals, tune in to my show on August 19 at 1 PM Eastern.
