Despite telling me they had no intention of interviewing any of the other parties besides the three main parties (Liberal, PC and NDP) and the Greens, Ontario’s public broadcaster, TVO, bowed to popular demand and had an online interview with Ontario Libertarian Party leader, Allen Small.

They also likely interviewed him due to the privately-owned Sun News Network interviewing him earlier here, which would make Ontario’s public broadcaster look bad if they hadn’t interviewed him, by offering less coverage of voting options than a private entity that doesn’t rely on tax dollars.

For the summary of my in-depth interview with him, just in time for tomorrow’s election, see here.

In the run-up to the June 12, 2014 Ontario provincial election, Allen Small, Ontario Libertarian Party leader, was interviewed by the Sun News Network on June 4.

Once again, the private sector continues to lead in providing alternative voices that the public sector claims to offer, despite Ontario’s public broadcaster, TVO, deciding not to provide any TV coverage of the Ontario Libertarian Party, despite its 74 candidates, which could theoretically form a majority government for the first time in its history.

Allen SmallOn the March 20, 2014 special broadcast of Exposing Faux Capitalism with Jason Erb, I interviewed Ontario Libertarian Party leader, Allen Small. Here is the audio.

We discussed the following issues:

  • The upcoming Ontario general election
  • The Ontario Libertarian Party’s plan to run a full slate of candidates in all 107 ridings in the upcoming election
  • Major parties changing their policies just to get votes, whereas Libertarian Party stands on principles
  • Reactions to increasing government intrusion in the private, peaceful activities of our lives
  • Municipal governance
  • Unnecessary permits
  • The proper role of government
  • Canada in infamous company with Cuba and North Korea, for not allowing private payment of primary health care by most residents
  • Ontario’s exemption for private sports clubs
  • Ontario used to have a vibrant private health care system in the early 1960s
  • Provincial health insurance coverage arbitrary and varies among provinces
  • You have a right to health, but not to force others to provide health care for you
  • Current health policy in Ontario costing time, money and lives
  • Toronto Mayor Rob Ford publicly admitting to what constitutes an indictable offence (crack possession and use)
  • Waterloo mayoral candidate Dave MacDonald’s letter to Premier Kathleen Wynne, calling for a provincially-mandated referendum on the Region’s light rail transit plans
  • Whether referendums are appropriate for issues that aren’t the proper function of government
  • The misconception of voting for an alternative party is “throwing your vote away”
  • Even a small percentage of support for alternative parties in a close election can cause other parties to “steal” ideas, and how that’s beneficial

I previously interviewed Allen on September 16, 2012.

Allen SmallOn the September 16, 2012 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism with Jason Erb, I interviewed Allen Small, leader of the Ontario Libertarian Party.

We had an in-depth discussion on the following issues:

– How he came to a libertarian understanding of issues, starting from the 1960s and culminating with his eventual leadership of the Ontario Libertarian Party in 2011
– Why the Libertarian Party of Ontario is “the party of choice”
– His informative experience with teaching in both the public and private school systems
– Ontario’s increasing nanny state
– How Canada shares an interesting distinction with North Korea and Cuba in being the only countries to prohibit its residents from paying out of their own pockets for primary health care
– Why the current government-monopolized health care system in Ontario has failed its residents, and what remedies exist

And in the second hour, I covered my article about an interestingly-timed article on an Islamic Centre, and talked about suspect claims and figures within the 9/11 Truth Movement.
