AUDIO – DESCRIPTION:

On December 24, 2020, Freedom Party president Robert Metz hosted an episode of the radio show “Just Right” that focused on Ontario’ Progressive Conservative government and its Premier, Doug Ford. Just Right described the episode as follows:

“It is still beyond the average person’s ability to come to terms with what is truly happening in the world today. Even as they fall victim to them, mention the terms ‘Agenda 21’ or the ‘Great Reset,’ and most people still think that you’re talking about some kind of crazy conspiracy theory.

radioAUDIO – DESCRIPTION:

On the May 31, 2018 episode of Just Right, Freedom Party leader Paul McKeever and Just Right host (and Freedom Party of Ontario president/CFO) Robert Metz discussed the coming, June 7, 2018 Ontario provincial election, and how the Ontario PC Party has essentially consisted of echoing Liberal spending promises, refusing to balance the budget, and refusing to address serious social issues. In other words: they are alienating both fiscal conservatives and social conservatives, hoping that people will vote not for ideas, but for a party with a name that just happens to have the word “conservative” in it.

Regular listeners to Just Right will recognize the voice of Andrew Lawton (in one of the audio clips used in the episode) speaking at a Freedom Party of Ontario dinner in 2013 about his journey from associating with a party devoid of pro-freedom ideas (the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario) to a party that has and promotes the right ideas and policies. Lawton praises the courage of those who run for Freedom Party because it takes more courage to do that than to run with a bigger party devoid of pro-freedom ideas. Five years later, Lawton agreed – for the 2018 provincial election – to be the Progressive Conservative Party candidate for the riding of London West. McKeever and Metz discuss integrity.

2013-05-06.mckeever-thumbAUDIO – DESCRIPTION:

Freedom Party of Ontario leader Paul McKeever is the guest of “The Andrew Lawton Show”, which airs beginning at 1:00 PM daily on AM980, in London, Ontario. The interview began at 1:35 PM.

The discussion was prompted by a November 2, 2013 CBC news report about Mr. Sam Lou, who has been a barber for 15 years. Pursuant to the Ontario College of Trades and Apprenticeship Act, 2009, hairdressing (which is deemed to include the work done by a barber) is currently the only service identified as a compulsory trade (compulsory in the sense that one must now be a member of the College of Trades in order to perform the work of a hairdresser or barber). Mr. Lou has been told that either he must learn the hairdressing techniques needed to style, perm, colour etc. a woman’s hair, or else he cannot be a member of the College of Trades. Having opened a barber shop one month ago, the government has just shut down his business. Another Barber, Mr. Frank Olszynko – who has been cutting hair since the 1960s – says that if he is fined for carrying on his barber work without membership in the College, he will refuse to pay the fine, and will fight it in court.

McKeever explains that, although the College of Trades must go, that is not the root of the problem. The problem is that government is preventing people from buying or selling services freely.

AUDIO – DESCRIPTION:

Citing a statistic and suggesting that a Canadian preference for television over print makes Canadians shallow, guest Gil Warren adds that such a situation leads people to support Nazis and…the Freedom Party of Ontario. His assault on those who advocate individual freedom and personal responsibility continues, as he calls Objectivist Ayn Rand a “fascist”. Metz puts a rest to that slander in short order with a to-the-point demonstration of the fact that Rand, in fact, was opposed to virtually everything that Hitler and his Nazis advocated. Warren proceeds to speak in dictator-like terms of the dangers of “allowing” people to have choice in education.
