This time, it’s a 19-year-old Canadian politician
All things considered, this is nothing short of astounding.

It is sad to say this, but generally, when I see “homeschool” or “homeschooler” in a headline, I assume it isn’t a good thing. I have mixed feelings about this one.
There is no doubt that Sam Oosterhoff is furthering the stereotype that all homeschoolers are conservative Christians. Of course, as a secular homeschooler, I don’t like this. I would prefer for people not to judge me on my homeschooling because every media hit with homeschooling revolves around conservative Christians.
Nevertheless, I do enjoy seeing ‘proof’ that homeschoolers are successful and competent people. I will respect his beliefs although I strongly disagree with some of them.
As far as Canadian politics? Well… I am thoroughly uneducated and won’t even comment. But, it seems like the campaign was… a normal political campaign :D.
