In the run-up to the October 19, 2015 Canadian federal election, I found these two federal all-candidates sessions to be very interesting.

This one in the riding of Fundy Royal, New Brunswick is interesting because the independent candidate, David Amos, looks like Gandalf from the Lord of the Rings, and he has some intelligent things to say.

And this one from the riding of Thornhill, Ontario is interesting, because only three candidates showed up, so the Libertarian candidate, Gene Balfour, gets to have a lot of talking time, speaking to the big government Liberal and NDP candidates, in an interactive way that you almost never see, and he schools them on the benefits of a more libertarian society.

A libertarian friend of mine has a new political podcast series from a much-needed Canadian perspective. It’s called the Political Paradox Podcast.

From the first two episodes:

This week, what is the REAL cost of “Free” healthcare in Canada? You won’t believe what Ontario is looking to ban next. Plus, the outrageous list of IOC demands that prompted Norway to pull out of it’s Olympic bid.

Australia’s ahead of Canada, in getting its first explicitly libertarian parliamentarian — Senator David Leyonhjelm.

It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, given Australia’s high Economic Freedom Index rating for several years in a row by the Heritage Foundation, with its 2014 rating of third place compared to Canada in sixth place and the United States as low as 11th place.

It sure helped that Australia now has an elected senate, as there’s no way an open libertarian would be appointed to any legislative body in a parliamentary system.

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.
