As part of my alternative Ontario provincial election coverage, in interviewing the Ontario Libertarian Party candidates in my area of Kitchener-Waterloo, here is my 8-minute interview with OLP candidate for Kitchener-Waterloo, James Schulz.

Here are my interviews with Kitchener Centre OLP candidate Patrick Bernier and Kitchener-Conestoga OLP candidate David Schumm.

There was an audio issue that resulted in my questions and commentary not being heard, so enjoy the chance to only hear a candidate’s own words!

I have extended interview invitations to the Ontario Libertarian Party candidates in Kitchener-Waterloo, and here is my 20-minute interview with Patrick Bernier, OLP candidate in Kitchener Centre. You can listen to the audio here.

We talk about the OLP’s plans for empowering individuals and not government, with regard to health care and education, which are always big issues, provincially, and locally as well.

We talk about the unaffordable $11,189 2012-2013 Ontario per student grant for the public education system, and student-driven alternative options that would be more effective.

For health care, we discussed patient-focused care, and ways to improve efficiencies and drive costs down to the level of other countries with better care.

Recently, I conducted an in-depth interview with Ontario Libertarian Party leader Allen Small on March 20, 2014.

John TurmelIn the second hour of the September 2, 2012 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism with Jason Erb, I interviewed two of the six candidates in the September 6 Kitchener-Waterloo byelection who were excluded from the corporate-controlled forums that were open to the public.

Invitations were sent by email to all six candidates — four responded, one didn’t confirm, and another — Libertarian Party candidate Allan Dettweiler — graciously yielded his spot to the others, since I had previously interviewed him for an entire hour.

Accordingly, I interviewed John Turmel, leader of the Pauper Party of Ontario, and Liz Rowley, leader of the Communist Party of Ontario.

Turmel gave an exposition of successful, non-parasitic monetary systems (until the banksters instigated to ruin them), and explained how governments can address their debt woes by issuing bonds to their employees for the payment of taxes and government-administered services, like Argentina did from 2001-2006.

He also pointed out that inflation actually decreased when these bonds were issued, since they weren’t parasitic — like the bonds and gold issued by banks — which is contrary to the standard “alternative” line that an increase in the money supply necessarily results in price inflation.

Then, I talked with Liz Rowley, who champions the inclusion of all eligible candidates in election forums that are open to the public.

In the first hour, I covered the following articles:

1) A proposal that anti-nuclear activists and free market advocates can support

2) Still think paying your income taxes is voluntary?

John Turmel, the Guinness Book of World Records holder for the most contested elections, and proponent of an “Argentine Solution” for our debt woes, roasts the organizers who kicked him out of a corporate-controlled Kitchener-Waterloo byelection debate after he called for a floor vote for the inclusion of all candidates.

You can find my September 2, 2012 inteview of him here, on Exposing Faux Capitalism, starting in the second hour.

John TurmelJohn Turmel, the Guinness Book of World Record holder for the most number of contested elections, is scheduled to be on Exposing Faux Capitalism with Jason Erb, September 2, 2012, at 2 PM Eastern.

Turmel is the leader of the Pauper Party of Ontario, and a candidate in the September 6, 2012 Kitchener-Waterloo byelection.

The corporate-controlled media has tried to keep him out of their forums, but they can’t keep him off of Exposing Faux Capitalism, where he will discuss his Argentine Solution for Ontarians, in issuing public sector pay with provincial bonds, as Argentina did in 2001, as a solution to their financial crisis.

Previously, I interviewed Ontario Libertarian Party K-W candidate, Allan Dettweiler.

Kitchener—Waterloo (provincial electoral district)The Kitchener-Waterloo byelection candidate forum planned for Monday, August 27, 2012 will only be including four of the 10 declared candidates, according to the Waterloo Region Record.

The organizers have seen fit not to invite the following eligible candidates, in alphabetical order:

– Garnet Bruce (Independent)
– Kevin Clarke (The People)
– Allan Dettweiler (Ontario Libertarian Party)
– David Driver (Freedom Party of Ontario)
– Elizabeth Rowley (Communist)
– John Turmel (Paupers)

I made the following comments on therecord.com:

Leaders visit K-W riding today

Given that the winner will replace a 20+-year representative of the riding, why are the other 6 candidates good enough to appear on our ballot but not in a single two-hour forum?

Kitchener-Waterloo byelection candidate forum planned Monday

GrandRiverJoe, Tim Hudak was in the PC government that left the province with a $5.6 billion deficit in 2003, despite claiming up until the election that they would balance the budget. In the 2011 election, Hudak was promising an 8% HST tax cut on hydro bills without explaining how he would cover the revenue loss.
