StockHouse Media founder runs for LP of Canada in Vancouver Centre

Libertarian Party of Canada Nominates Financial Mogul Jeff Berwick in Vancouver Centre :: Wire Service Media: (press release)

May 13, 2015 - "The Libertarian Party of Canada has nominated Jeff Berwick for the riding of Vancouver Centre. Jeff is an entrepreneur, businessman, and financial analyst. He is best known in Canada for founding StockHouse Media, which was and still is Canada's largest financial website. At its peak, StockHouse was worth $240 million and employed 250 people in 6 countries.

"Since selling StockHouse in 2002, Jeff founded, and is CEO of, TDV Media and Services. Jeff is regularly featured on media outlets such as CNBC, Bloomberg, Fox Business and CBC Radio.

"When party leader Tim Moen was asked about Berwick's nomination, he said 'We couldn't be happier. Adding a candidate like Berwick for 2015 cements us not just as an emerging party, but one that will win ridings come October. Jeff is world renowned for his entrepreneurial prowess and a champion of free markets, and I know he is looking forward to hopefully taking that expertise to Ottawa.'

"Berwick, who is new to the realm of politics, had this to say about his nomination: 'The Libertarian Party represents a fresh approach to politics: One that encourages entrepreneurship and economic growth in a significantly different way than the other parties. People across Canada can sense that something is wrong. They keep voting in the false left-right paradigm that has kept them trapped in this cycle of less freedom, as the passing of Bill C-51 showed. Not only that, oppressive government control and destruction of the economy via egregious taxation and regulation is just another example of that trend. There is only one party in Canada that stands for freedom and has the ideas that will make real change for the betterment of all Canadians; and that is the Libertarian Party. For this reason I will be putting my full effort and resources towards helping Tim Moen create real change in Ottawa this October.'"
