On May 26, 1995, Freedom Party of Ontario held a provincial election dinner at the Radisson hotel in London, Ontario. Freedom Party’s then-party leader, Jack Plant, gave his first speech to a Freedom Party gathering as party leader, and most of the party’s candidates took the opportunity to give a short, 2-minute speech to introduce themselves and share with attendees their stories of their experiences in the campaign. The night concluded with a short speech by the party secretary of the time, Robert Vaughan, who had been elected school trustee.
