/

Show Notes

Matt Bufton thinks smaller government is better, and he’s swimming against the current at universities across Canada, but here’s the good news: a lot of university students are swimming against the current with him.

 

Bufton runs the Institute for Liberal Studies that gets students into the big ideas that are the foundation of small government.
