I really like Tim Moen, the Leader of the Libertarian Party of Canada.

 

His country has been getting increasing attention in liberty circles recently on account of its burgeoning anti-free speech legislation such as the infamous Bill C-16, “popularized” by Jordan Peterson, and some of its YouTube exports, such as Lauren Southern and others.

In this episode, I speak to Tim about how bad thing really is up there north of the border, with a focus on healthcare, free speech and the illiberal left, and learnings and divisions in his own party around the suspension and subsequent re-inclusion of Lauren Southern, YouTube-famous taker-on of anti-free-speech leftists on campus, who then ran as a candidate for the party.

This is a great interview with a great man. Enjoy it.
