CALGARY, Dec. 21, 2012 /CNW/ - Applying free-market principles to
municipal government requires listening and responding to the concerns
of citizens as voters and consumers. The Manning Centre's new Municipal
Governance Project will look at how this can best be done - starting in
Calgary, then throughout Canada.
David Seymour - a veteran of the policy world, both in Canada and in his
native New Zealand - has joined this project as Senior Fellow,
Municipal Governance. He is based in Calgary, Alberta.
The Municipal Governance Project is a multi-year research and public
education initiative undertaken by the Manning Centre for Building
Democracy (a non-charitable, not-for-profit organization designed to
strengthen the knowledge and skills of political participants).
Research and educational aspects of the projects which qualify as
charitable will be handled through the Manning Foundation (a national
not-for-profit foundation with charitable status).
