All Austro-Canadians interested in the advance of liberty should make it out this weekend to Orono, Ontario for the the world-famous Liberty Summer Seminar. Held by the Institute for Liberal Studies, this event combines two days of lectures on the ideas of liberty with camping, music, and friendship. The Liberty Summer Seminar will take place at the home of the Balko Jaworski family, located at 7570 Best Road. Guests are invited to camp on the property (BYO tent and sleeping bag), although some choose to seek comfort in one of several nearby B&Bs. Be sure to bring clothes for all weather – it could be hot, it could be cold, and it will definitely rain!

This year’s line-up features Radley Balko of the Huffington Post, plus: Nimish Adhia (Visiting Professor, Beloit College)
Leon Drolet (Educational Programs Director, Institute for Humane Studies)
Alide Forstmanis (Executive Director, Tribute to Liberty)
Jasmin Gunette (Vice President, Montreal Economic Institute)
Anton Howes (Director, UK Liberty League)
Jan Narveson (Professor Emeritus, University of Waterloo)
Chris Schafer (Executive Director, Canadian Constitution Foundation)
Michael Schmidt (CCF Client and defendant in R. v. Schmidt)
Gregory Thomas (Federal Director, Canadian Taxpayers Federation) Registration for the Liberty Summer Seminar is $125, or $60 for students. Registration includes all seminar activities, camping space, and meals from Saturday lunch to Sunday lunch. We have a limited number of volunteer positions available for students, please contact us if you would like to be considered for one of these positions. Student volunteers are not required to pay a registration fee.
