“Intelligent and informed debate contributes to a stronger, healthier and more competitive Canadian society”, says Manley. “In five short years the Macdonald-Laurier Institute has emerged as a significant and respected voice in the shaping of public policy”.
Manley, a former cabinet minister with the federal government, also praised the thought leadership of MLI Managing Director Brian Lee Crowley.
“On a wide range of issues important to our country’s future, Brian Lee Crowley and his team are making a difference”.
Throughout 2015, MLI is marking five years of true north in Canadian public policy by celebrating its unique contributions to thought leadership in Canada.
This includes our work on fixing Canadian health care, unmasking the true impact of “social licence” claims over natural resource projects, explaining why balanced budgets matter and our work on Aboriginal prosperity.
Other Canadians to pass along their congratulations include: Globe and Mail columnist Jeffrey Simpson, deputy TD Bank Chairman Frank McKenna and former Prime Minister Paul Martin.
