During this time he also developed an interest in human rights issues around the world, largely inspired by his maternal grandmother, a Holocaust survivor. 

At age 15, he began writing a column for Sherwood Park News for which he continues to be a regular contributor as an MP. His columns also appear regularly in the Fort Saskatchewan Record and The Post Millennial, and he has written columns for Macleans, Huffington PostPolicy Options, and The Catholic World Report.
