Matt Bufton is a proud Libertarian who does not want to be lumped in with Conservatives.

With the Conservative leadership race picking up steam, Matt, executive director of the Institute for Liberal Studies, tells us why the Conservatives don’t represent his values. He also gets into why Canada is a much better place for Libertarians than the US.

Tannara Yelland tells the story of 21-year old Breanna Kannick, who died in remand in Saskatchewan. Tannara’s piece at Briarpatch Magazine: “A Matter of Life and Death in Remand”

A bill is proposing parties face penalties unless they put nearly as many women as men on the ballot.
