It has been somewhat of a bittersweet start to my fourth week interning in Canada. With the Freedom Week Conference over, I have left Vancouver behind.

”When you play the game of thrones you win or you die’. While blunt and confronting, this sentiment is not entirely unrelated to our current political system. In Australia, we have seen more than our fair-share of rising and falling leaders of government along with the instability such events bring. Much like the citizens of […]

My third week has seen me journey to Vancouver, the capital of British Columbia. What a spectacular view from the air, descending into Sea Island with the city skyline clearly visible.
