On April 11th the Marketplace Institute will be hosting an evening of conversation and film with Preston Manning. Looking through the lens of the life of U.S President, Abraham Lincoln, Preston Manning will lead us through honest discussion on how to navigate moral issues in an elected democratic assembly. With extensive clips from the 2012 film Lincoln, the evening will be rich with reflection on the interface of faith and politics and the many challenges encountered in today's political context. 

Join us Friday, April 11th at 7:00 pm at Regent College, Rm. 100  


Preston Manning served as a member of the Canadian House of Commons from 1993 to 2001, part of which he served as his party’s critic for Science, Technology and Innovation. He founded two new political parties—the Reform Party of Canada and the Canadian Reform Conservative Alliance—and was the Leader of the Official Opposition from 1997 to 2000. Preston also has 20 years of experience as an owner and manager of a consulting firm specializing mainly in strategic planning and communications advice to the energy sector. In 2005, he founded the Manning Centre for Building Democracy, which supports research, educational, and communications initiatives designed to achieve a more democratic society in Canada guided by conservative principles.
