When Maxime Bernier broke away from the Conservatives last year and launched the People's Party of Canada, Angelo Isidorou thought he had finally found a political party he aligned with.

The 22-year-old University of British Columbia student immediately joined the fledging party as a campaign executive before it even had a name.

Isidorou explains that he was drawn to Bernier's libertarian values and as the leader of his campus free speech club, worried the Conservatives were straying from their political core.
