National Post editorial board: Save the Liberty Summer Seminar
National Post editorial board August 19, 2010 – 3:15 pm
We are not sure if the slow summer is to blame, but it is hard to shake the impression that Big Brother has really been running amok lately. Coast to coast, our bureaucrats apparently have nothing better to do than harass well-meaning citizens who take any kind of personal initiative. Earlier this summer, we opined on the pettiness of the officials of Port Coquitlam, B.C. who ordered two enterprising pre-teens to remove their lemonade stand from a local park. This display of mean-spiritedness has now been trumped by bureaucrats in Clarington, Ont., who seek to put a stop to a ten-year tradition at the home of local resident Peter Jaworski and his family who host — wait for it — a summer seminar on personal liberties.
