February 13, 2016: Over fifty thoughtful Conservative Party of Canada members packed the meeting room at 519 Church street for a regional policy meeting chaired and organized by David Gentili and Julian DiBattista, with the efforts of May Chow and the Toronto Centre riding association, supported by University-Rosedale Conservative EDA. We were there for 5 hours, talking about future policy directions for the party, looking at amendments to the party Constitution and Policy Manual that might be discussed further at our May national meeting in Vancouver.
At the end of the day 36 Policy suggestions and 4 Constitution suggestions were discussed and voted upon, with a very broad cross-section of perspective seen in many areas, especially social policy issues, leading to some stimulating and very informative discussion.
Thanks to everyone who made the effort and came out locally, and even from out of town, on this extremely cold Canadian winter day.
Thanks also to MPs and past MPs Kelly Leitch, Peter Kent, and Ted Opitz who came out, spoke to the crowd and even contributed policy suggestions.
