An ordinary family home.. targeted by municipal bureaucrats. Surely it must be a house of ill repute; maybe a mafia HQ; or a crack-house; possibly a terror-cell den; perhaps a Hell’s Angel hideout; a pot grow-op, perhaps? WRONG.
Worse than any of those: it’s a nest of ordinary freedom-loving immigrant Polish-Canadian libertarians who have like-minded friends over yearly to their 40 acres for BBQ, beverages, and bold chat about freedom and liberty and free speech. It’s called The Institute for Liberal Studies. Here’s actual proof of the kind of extremism, free-thinking, and mob-mentality they host:
Get Barb Hall on the line! Call the exterminators! Call the Toronto PD G-20 innocent civilian harassment squad! Get the SWAT ready!
Teh Binks Is Steaming
Back in mid-December ’07 I first head about the attempted silencing of Mark Steyn. Outrage ensued, this website resulted.
This new needless politically correct pestering of the Jaworski family should warn all Canadians that our freedoms exist– according to some officials and intolerant Canadians– at the whim and permission of The Authorities.
It gets even more worser.
Turns out the Jaworskis are actually immigrants to this land from violently former-Communist Poland:
“Our family escaped Poland for fear of reprisals in 1984 after my mom and dad handed out pro-democracy and pro-freedom literature from under my baby carriage,” said Peter Jaworski. “It’s ironic and upsetting that they may now be facing charges in Canada for allowing me to host an event in support of those very same principles.”
Ironic. Sputter, twitch. Dad Jaworski says:
“I will always let my son use our property for what he believes in, and for the freedom we came to Canada to find. If he wants to host a seminar to support more liberty in Canada, we’re not just happy, but proud to let him do that. That’s what you do as parents.”
How horrible and unCanadian, huh?
We’re Not Going To take It!
So, the Binks has some suggestions for freedom-loving folks everywhere (after you read the links above to get all the details correctly, and to get yourself properly worked up).
(1) Read, link, and pass on the link for their news-blog far and wide ASAP. Other blogs, talk-radio, family, e-mail, whomsoever.
(b) The Clarington municipality contact info: The municipality’s main switchboard phone number is 905-623-3379. The mayor is Jim Abernethy. The councillor is Gord Robinson. The contact webpage. Be detailed, polite, and determined: let’s get this municipal harassment stopped. Plus:
Municipality of Clarington
40 Temperance Street
Fax: (905) 623-0608
Telephone Inquiries: 905-623-3379 Extension 258

(iii) Donate to support the Jaworski Legal Defence Fund. Period.
(4) Write to your Provincial representative, Member of Parliament, Prime Minister, and newspapers. The local paper is the Orono Weekly Times, P.O. Box 209. Orono, ON L0B 1M0.. firstname.lastname@example.org.
(e) If you’re in the area, call ahead & stay at the Willow Pond Bed and Breakfast. Show your support of freedom & democracy-loving newcomers and hard-working refugees to this country. Orono, Ontario, is a small village about an hour’s drive East from Toronto, between Oshawa and Peterborough. View Large Map
(vi) This is now a frontline in the freedom-war, and fighting for ordinary sensible decent Canadianism, versus the petty bureaucracy and politically incorrect Big Brother stifling the voice of liberty-loving people in this land. Do something about it. That some other local hotelier might have called the red-tape police is only a secondary cause.
‘Unapproved by the government‘? Then petty bureaucrats and pettier rules and red tape get stuffed.
