My favorite Canadian lawyer, the one who always says, "Politics ruins everything," is now running for Parliament (15 minutes).
Why would I post someone's announcement "throwing his hat into the ring" for an election 99.99% of my readers can't participate in? (I know I had at least one Canadian reader at one point, though as I recall she was from a different province.) Because I like what he says. It relates directly to a conversation we had just this afternoon with our Good Neighbor, lamenting the tribalism that has taken over America and the loss of the simple, powerful belief that we can be friends, work for common causes (or even have common causes), and defend, help, and support each other, even when we have strong differences of opinion.
I wish David Freiheit the best. How could anyone not vote for someone whose name means "Beloved Freedom"?
