Manning center Event Canceled

We regret to announce that this year’s Manning Networking Conference is cancelled. We will gather again March 25-27, 2021 at the Westin Hotel in Ottawa.


Health and safety concerns combined with lower participation make any event at this time largely impossible.


I want to acknowledge the incredible amount of work, planning and investment that goes into an event like this: our staff, sponsors, exhibitors, speakers and many volunteers – thank you! To our vendors and the hotel staff at the Ottawa Westin, I can only imagine the difficulty you are going through at this time. We have a great hospitality industry in this country – we are with you!


This morning we reached out to the various Conservative leadership campaigns to propose the scheduled March 26th leadership debate still go ahead as a live-streamed event. We will keep you apprised.

We will be sending separate correspondence to registrants, sponsors, exhibitors and speakers over today and tomorrow with regard to next steps.

Andrew Scheer is right. It’s time to end corporate welfare in Canada

From: Financial Post

Last week, before any Canadian was debating dubious prime ministerial dress-ups, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer came out with a pledge to eliminate $1.5 billion in federal corporate welfare spending.
It’s only scratching the surface: by some estimates total annual federal subsidies to business are in the range of $14 billion. But it’s also nothing to sneeze at: $1.5 billion represents the tax bills of 100,000 average-income Canadian households.
But even as a tentative first step, Scheer’s proposal represents a clear break from the comfortable status quo consensus about corporate welfare in Canada. For starters, it’s hard to think of a major party leader openly using the term “corporate welfare” in recent years .
