Solidarity: save the Willow Pond Bed and Breakfast

| Disqus Comments
My libertarian friend Peter Jaworski of the Western Standard just brought this story to my attention--perhaps the most direct confirmation of anti-statist libertarian fears that one could imagine. This is a case of malicious meddling by petty Ontario officialdom that beggars belief.

As readers will note, the matter touches Peter directly. For the crime of having a conference at his parents' place in the country--one that has taken place annually without incident for nearly a decade--the latter are now facing possible mega-fines in the vicinity of $50K. Never mind that this was a get-together that would be of scant interest to most of us on the left: charging the Jaworskis for allowing it to take place is an obvious infringement of the Charter right to assemble, and a fight-back is essential. Give the family a hand:

The Jaworskis are expected to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice at 605 Rossland Road East in Whitby, Ontario on the 28th of September at 2 p.m in courtroom #103. They are working on setting up a blog (www.willowpondbb.wordpress.com) to draw attention to their plight, and have put together a legal defence fund to help pay for their legal fees.

There are some issues that require solidarity across the usual political crevasses. This is one. Make a contribution, give shout-outs where you can, and send polite emails to Clarington Mayor Jim Abernethy and to the Jaworski's councillor, Gord Robinson Charlie Trim.
