“I want gay married couples to be able to protect their marijuana plants with guns.”

They’re both left-wing and right-wing. They steadfastly oppose anti-terrorism legislation such as Bill C-51, advocate for legalizing drugs and prostitution, and promote a non-interventionist foreign policy. Yet this same group also wants to allow private healthcare, decrease taxes, and make it easier to obtain guns.

What could be behind this seeming paradox? The Libertarian Party of Canada. The above quote is from party leader Tim Moen, and features in political advertising that has taken the Internet by storm in… the United States of America.

Will they be able to garner similar adoration here in Canada in time for the federal election on October 19?
