Founded in 2007 as a print and online publication, C2C Journal is now primarily an online magazine publishing original commentaries, stories, reviews and investigative reports. Aimed at a national Canadian audience of readers interested in fresh ideas and quality writing about current political, cultural and economic issues, C2C specializes in longer form journalism that provides more substance than most mainstream news products and is more engaging than most academic journals.
C2C’s unabashed bias is in favour of free markets, democratic governance and individual liberty. We strive for balance, fairness and accuracy in our reporting and commentary. Our mission is to explore and develop “Ideas that Lead” by encouraging writers to push boundaries, challenge orthodoxies and advance arguments rooted in the values and principles of classical liberalism and western civilization.
C2C is particularly dedicated to the discovery and development of new, young writers and invites anyone interested in writing for the magazine to visit our Submissions page
