Canada has a robust history of freedom

Freedom is as Canadian as maple syrup and the Canadian Rockies. Don’t let collectivists tell you otherwise

Canada has a robust history of freedomEarlier this year, I stumbled across a framed copy of the Canadian Bill of Rights, the liberty-expanding law promulgated by then-Prime Minister John Diefenbaker and passed by Parliament in 1960.
