The Manning Centre is Still a Registered Charity
Ethical Oil has written a letter to the Canada Revenue Agency to review the David Suzuki Foundation's charitable status because, they allege, the Suzuki Foundation is a partisan political organization. I won't link to it because I don't want to. The National Post and the Toronto Sun are also carrying stories - I won't link to them either, because I don't want to.
I will point out, whatever you think of the David Suzuki Foundation, if you support this move to remove their charitable status, you should at least be arguing the same for the Manning Centre. To do otherwise, is to attain unheard of hypocritical heights.
What is the Manning Centre's mission statement? Building Canada's conservative movement.
What do they do? The Manning Centre’s role is to equip future political leaders with the ideas, skills and networks necessary to make a principled and effective contribution to Canadian politics.
Somehow, I don't think the National Post nor the Toronto Sun will run stories calling for the Manning Centre to be de-registered.
