Canadian City Reluctantly Agrees That It's Permissible To Celebrate Your Freedom on Your Own Property Without First Getting Government Approval


In August, I posted about Lech and Marta Jaworksi, who along with their son Peter host an annual Liberty Summer Seminar on their property in Clarington, Ontario. Last year, the couple was threatened with a $50,000 dollar fine for violating local zoning ordinances. The sad irony here is that a couple who emigrated to Canada in the 1980s to escape communist Poland would face a potentially bankrupting fine for putting on a conference celebrating freedom.

I'm happy to report that thanks to some legal help from the Canadian Constitution Foundation, all charges against the Jaworski's have now been droppedNational Post coverage here.
