Canada’s intransigent secularists
Rebekah Hebbert is a Canadian student and writer. Home-schooled all her
life, she is now embarked on the wonderful world of accelerated distance learning as an economics student, while trying to avoid as much math as possible. Originally motivated to get involved in politics because of the threat to freedom of speech by human rights tribunals, she has spent
a lot of time since then as a socio-political-cultural blogger at missmarprelate.blogspot.com,
writing event blogs for political conferences, doing research/policy writing for a pro-life political party, and indulging her odd hobby of reading every human rights tribunal decision she can get her hands on.
