Without freedom, one cannot be prosperous. These might seem like simple words, but they seem to be all too often misunderstood when comes the time to make policy decisions.

Culminating with the Montreal Action Forum in May, this bilingual series hopes to tackle topics directly related to youth, freedom and prosperity, while proposing sensible solutions to current issues.
