Why Hold The Line?

We are a collection of Canadian newspaper and magazine writers creating an outlet for engaging, irreverent writing. We're not culture warriors. We're not partisan. But we are tired of institutional cultures enforcing a state of stifling conformity.

We just want to call out illiberalism, hypocrisy, and bullshit wherever we find it.

We hope you will allow us the honour of inspiring, enlightening and occasionally offending you.

Why Subscribe?

If you like what you read, please consider paying for a subscription. Or better yet, pitch in a little more to become a Founding Member. The more resources we have, the more we can expand. If we want to fight for liberal values, we need to demonstrate that there is an audience for them in Canada.
