The Freedom Party of Ontario (FpO) is a provincial political party in Ontario, Canada. It was founded on January 1, 1984 in London, Ontario by Robert Metz and Marc Emery.
The Freedom Party has fielded candidates in every provincial election since 1985, and in several by-elections. It has also participated in numerous public policy debates, often on contentious social issues.
Freedom Party of Ontario's founding principle is that "Every individual, in the peaceful pursuit of personal fulfillment, has an absolute right to his or her own life, liberty, and property.
The party has, from its inception in 1984, summarized its platform with the statement "Freedom Party believes that the purpose of government is to protect our freedom of choice, not to restrict it". The party advocates government that takes into account only claims backed by evidence. It submits that all government laws and decisions must be logical, and must at all times serve the purpose of ensuring that no person's life, liberty, or property is taken without his consent.
Freedom Party holds the pursuit of ones own happiness to be an individual's highest moral purpose. To that end, it rejects libertarianism (which it holds is implicitly moral relativistic and anti-government), and instead champions governmental defence of the individual values of life, liberty, property.
