David Crowe interviews David Stephan, whose second child Ezekiel died in 2012. David, and his wife Collet, were charged with the death, and were eventually convicted of “failing to provide the necessities of life”.

ANDREW MCGILL – Why People Vote for Counterproductive Policies

Governing is often a cause-and-effect business. Give workers a tax break on retirement accounts? More people save for life after the working world. Offer a rebate for old cars? Drivers scrap their gas-guzzling Explorers in favor of sensible Corollas, and average fuel efficiency goes up. It’s easy to sell something to voters when the costs and benefits are immediately obvious. …

Alexandra Kotowski – Canada’s Feminist Prime Minister, One Year In

One year ago, Justin Trudeau took office as Canada’s 23rd prime minister and promptly fulfilled a major campaign promise by appointing a diverse and gender balanced cabinet that “looks like Canada.” When a reporter asked why appointing women was a priority, Trudeau shrugged and responded with his now-famous quip, “because it’s 2015.” Trudeau isn’t afraid to identify as a feminist …
