About Ted Harlson

Born in lower Central B.C. Canada, I grew up in the lakes and mountains of the Okanagan. I've traveled in many Canadian cities, settling in Toronto mid 1980's where I married my lovely wife, Rose. Thanks to Ayn Rand's books and ideas, we have a happy and productive life, both with careers we enjoy! Life is a joy!

What about Antifa?

It is important to understand the brutal essence of Antifa as they pose as freedom fighters, as “fighting fascism”, while media, politicians and left-wing extremist professors coddle or hide/ cower before their anarchist, murderous ways:

An Ontario Canada politician kicked from Progressive Conservatives

The following is a January 15, 2021 letter to Ontario’s Premier from Roman Baber, is now an (ex)sitting member of provincial parliament despite being truthful, honest, and accurate in his devastating portrayal of current lockdowns here.

Would that Brampton South’s own MPP representative, Prabmeet Singh Sakaria had a tiny speck of the same integrity and courage as this MPP. Would that our own Premier of Ontario, Canada be honest. The Ontario’s political pandemic would be over sooner than later:

Hold the torch high

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved, and were loved, and now we lie

In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields.

 – By John McRae

The Freedom Party of Ontario 

is the only provincial political 

party in Canada I know that hasn’t 

broken faith with freedom.

Canada’s Human Right’s Code

Human Rights Commission as Criminal

Canadians used to be free to talk about anything including judging other peoples character, even if they were wrong. But forced multiculturalism, diversity and the Human Rights Commission has destroyed rational discourse between people of different backgrounds. Political pretence reigns. 

Historically this wasn’t so. Canadians used to voluntarily rely on reasoning in communication. 

A culture of reason and freedom going all the way back to ancient Greece, had forged centuries of just relationships. The result was the Dominion’s successful struggle in making an honest, productive living from the wilderness and pioneering. Basic civil standards became recognized and codified by institutions. Canada became a western, civilized country rooted in individual rights and supporting a body of knowledge called the western canon. 

The European and Asian theatres, 1914 – 1945 by contrast, offered clear lessons when moderns turned barbaric and uncivil. 

After the great wars, generations took for granted the freedoms they fought for. They didn’t dream, after seeing with their own eyes the slaughter and murders by tyrants, that anyone would establish the same kinds of collective powers they fought against. Little did these generation realize that by taking for granted individual rights, individual freedom had no form and would lose expression. In addition, individual rights was actively disdained by Canada’s elites. They rejected the pinnacle of rights: America. 

So, despite the fight against collective tyranny, we now live under the haunting spectre of censorship, by being not allowed to speak against collectives.  

When the (Maoist) revolution took place. Canadian students followed and revolted here in North America. They placed anarchy, and the mob above the individual. Morality was thus realigned to protect tribes and not the person, thus changing the Human Rights Commission into a destroyer, not a protector of rights.

Crime has risen as a direct result.

Canada’s Human Rights Commission is now criminal in nature. 

U.S. Canada trade war

July 1, 2018

Dear Reader,

Guiding the Trade War

The president of the United States putting up tariffs to counter the world’s unfair politics constitutes a seismic shift in American politico-economic policy. The measures are more political than economic due Canada’s and the worlds, long standing politically embedded trade.

Whatever the end road, may I suggest, Ontario best prepare by deregulating its own economy for more flexibility and maneuverability to meet the trade challenges ahead.

American and tariffs affecting Ontario will increase the domestic retail prices for Ontario citizens, so it will become necessary to open up our internal markets for greater competition. This can greatly lower costs and prices. Objectively speaking, it has been internal politicizing of our economy that cause tariffs in the first place.

Politicizing of our economy is merely turned outward towards friendly countries.

Trade corruptions lie in a fact. 

A broad fact, and least mentioned, is that economies world-wide do not have a clear and distinct separation of politics and economics. Due to, “mixed economies” innumerable corruptions exist that undermine capitalist producers. Many countries, including provinces like Ontario have used political leverage, not economic value to manipulate their sales to the U.S. and North America.

Internally with this trade war underway, Canadian companies will not be without their own devious plotting. Canadian companies will take advantage of Canada’s restricted domestic market and exacerbate problems by jacking up their own prices unnecessarily simply because Canada does not have a separation of economics from politics. Competitive and uncompetitive companies will put themselves behind walls of government favour, generally tax money. This is unacceptable.

If this new Ontario leadership truly cares for citizens, deregulating would be the order of the day to off-set American and Ontario tariffs which are setting the conditions for a massive price rise of everything.

The current tariff trade war will be long and protracted which will, recognized or not, be a cultural struggle for freedom or tyranny to eventually rule the day. 

The end result wanted, a free economy, means Ontario and Canada must find a way to separate its own economics from politics. The separation of government from economics must rule if we in North America want freedom and not tyranny.

Will you work towards freedom and away from coming tyranny?

Thank you for your reply,

Ted Harlson

The Globe tied in Unity

I meet with locals in Brampton South once a month

I will continue the monthly Ayn Rand discussions, the 4th Sunday of every month. 

The discussions start at 7 pm and last a few hours. We cover various branches of Ayn Rand’s philosophy; Objectivism. 

If you are interested, please feel free to listen or join in the discussions.

You will find all the details at, “Brampton Objectivist Association” in Meetup.

Ontario 2018

Any current attempt to reduce Ontario’s deficit (annual running payment) will not begin to address the massive weight of already misspent tax dollars.
Interest payments of Ontario’s debt are the third biggest budgetary expense, and destined to grow even larger post election of 2018.

Our energy markets have been mindlessly slaughtered; coal needlessly banned, electricity manipulated right out of affordability, and we are still paying for the PC’s nuclear programs of yesteryear. The Liberals have greened their efforts as a blind, mad drive for electric monopoly and control.

Due to these failed strategies, Ontario now has dysfunctional finances where minimum wages have been introduced as a supposed cure for our now high cost of living. Small business owners are simply expected to pay for decades of massive public failures. This shift of responsibility to taxpayers is black indeed.

Take a step back and read the writing on the legislative walls, or within the Liberal/PC/NDP party promises. You will see an unconscionable war on capitalism. A war on the able and productive has emerged as a full lock down against freedom of choice and movement.

If you can’t figure out why we got to this point, consider…

Dr. Spock (Star Trek) once said, “…if all logical avenues have been explored on a problem and no rational answer is found, one must assume the problem has an irrational reason.” To figure out the historical and wayward behavior of our taxes and debt which are not paying back, dare consider the irrational.

However, understanding it all, including a solution requires reasoned interpretation. For this, check out the Freedom Party of Ontario’s, “Opposition Budget.” There you will find running commentary, as it happened, that explains it all.
