Tabling at MCC 2016!

The annual Manning Centre Conference was once dubbed “Woodstock for conservatives” by CTV News.
Based in Calgary, the Manning Centre was founded in 2005 to support conservative and libertarian activists and ideas in Canada. Named after its founder, Preston Manning, the Manning Centre is an independent organization that believes in a limited role for government. They operate on three pillars: research, training, and networking.

Every year, the Manning Centre holds the largest annual gathering of conservative and classical liberal politicians, activists, think tanks, advocacy groups, and academics in Canada.

This year’s conference, which took place from February 25-27 at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa, centered around the them of Recharging the Right. The idea behind this theme is to recharge and focus conservative leadership across all levels of government, including a reflection on policy ideas and strategies.

Equal Voice uOttawa had the pleasure of representing the National Chapter of Equal Voice at the 2016 Manning Centre Conference. Co-Presidents  Danika Leminski and Jessica Saviotti had the opportunity to meet various leaders of the Conservative Party to discuss the role and importance of women in politics.
