About Nate’s Substack

Michelle Rempel convinced Nate that starting a Substack was a good idea. Since 2015, he has served as the Liberal MP for Beaches-East York, and he will continue to serve in that role until the next federal election.

Nate writes about current issues, why politics matters, and how to effectively run for office and serve.

In addition to policy commentary, and a behind-the-scenes look at politics, Nate’s Substack is also home to his podcast Uncommons.
