The Libertarian Party of Canada hosted a convention in Calgary over the weekend. I had a chance to talk to leader Tim Moen about some of the exciting things that have happened within the last year.
With membership numbers tripling in 2015 alone and a big contingent of Libertarians in Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia, most of the party’s growth has occurred in liberty-oriented Alberta.
Libertarianism is definitely becoming more popular, but some people are still unfamiliar with what they stand for.
The Libertarian Party is unlikely to form government in the near future, but Moen says he’ll be travelling the country encouraging new members to join, and hopes to have full slate of candidates running in the next federal election.
