Who invented individual rights in Canada? (Hint: Not modern progressives.)

In the sixth episode in our Interviews with a Contrarian series, The Aristotle Foundation’s Mark Milke interviews James M. Forbes, author of a new book, Protestant Liberty: Religion and the Making of Canadian Liberalism 1828-1878. Milke and James discuss the parallels between the 19th century and today on issues of individual rights, the power of the collective, and what anchors a classically liberal country.
