Smiths Falls, Ontario October 23, 2009 – The Lanark Landowners are setting the stage to make the 2010 Ontario Municipal Elections the most exciting in recent memory. The Lanark Landowners, famous for their “STOP – Back Off Government” cry for property rights, are wading into local municipal politics.
The Lanark Landowners Association will field a Slate of Candidates in the 2010 Ontario Municipal Elections in Lanark County. During the next 12 months, the Lanark Landowners will recruit local residents to run in the 55 elected positions in the 8 Municipalities of Lanark County.
Of course, what Lanark Landowners news release (which I have rewritten a bit here, I think there first par. is meant to be par. three) is incomplete without vague threats of law breaking?
The McGuinty government is on notice. If anyone of the 500,000 provincial acts, regulations, minister directives or provincial boards contravene the Charter of Rights and Freedoms then that act or regulation will be deemed to be without authority.
Sort of an "elect me and I promise to spend time in lock-up" platform. That should help with candidate recruitment.
No wonder their provincial counterpart has engaged my fave Gerry Nicholls to do a little message massaging.
