“This report in the Winnipeg Free Press last weekend would have folks believe that I am the mastermind and “backer” of a new political party in Manitoba. The report is a good example of overzealous and imaginative reporting, and it prompts a disclaimer. I am not the leader or backer of any political party.
As a private citizen and as president of the Frontier Centre, I have often spoken, privately and publicly, about the poverty of policy discourse in Manitoba and in Canada. But neither I nor the Centre is involved in founding a new political entity.
