Capitalist Acts Between Consenting Adults

Had the pleasure this weekend to speak at the Canadian Constitution Foundation's "Future of Freedom" conference.

It was an excellent event and my hat is off to CCF executive director John Carpay who put together a really first-rate show.

Other speakers at the conference included Michael Coren, Lorne Gunter, Stanley Hartt and Supreme Court Justice Marshall Rothstein.

The highlight for me, however, was Charles Fried's talk on "Is Liberty Possible?" Fried, a Harvard Law professor and former Solicitor General of the United States, eloquently praised the virtues of "capitalist acts between consenting adults."

Another highlight of the conference was meeting lots of friends: people like Dr. Roy, Janet Neilson, Matt Bufton and Peter Jaworski -- who heads up the Institute for Liberal Studies.

The Canadian Constitution Foundation is certainly an organization which deserves the support of Canadians who cherish freedom.
