"The Harris Legacy" Book Explored

Suffice it to say that many, if not most,

of the fundamental changes implemented during the Harris regime survive and define the Ontario we currently inhabit. It's not an overstatement, based on the evidence accumulated in this collection of essays, to say that... we live in Mike Harris' Ontario today.

The importance of excellence in analysis and strategic thinking

"Lessons Learned" Election Reviews are held following key elections. Nowhere else will you find a day of presentations and discussions that critically assess the most recent election in an honest and straightforward way.

This is a unique opportunity to network, reflect, listen and learn from those on the front lines – winners, and those who fell short. Unique to CLF we also include those who think differently or have a different perspective. Most distinctly this has included prominent members of the media and partisans of other political parties.

The last three years have seen an unprecedented opportunity through CLF's Post-Election reviews of two federal campaigns, an Ontario provincial and an Ontario municipal.

The analysis available for participants was second to none and participants had access to the most honest conversations possible.

As a candidate of record in this election, I valued the opporunity to come together to explore the election from a variety of perspectives. This was an excellent learning and growth opportunty, which also allowed for providing feedback and asking questions. I look forward to other CLF events.

The CLF Lessons Learned event provided access to hard data, informed opinion, and networking conversations with other Conservatives that care about the future of our parties and movement. The eager participation of CPC staff and candidates really sent a strong message to the faithful. It was worth the trip from out west. Great value packed into one Saturday.

The Nat Campaign panelists ended up being a lot more honest and forthcoming than I thought, which was a very pleasant surprise. I loved getting another peak behind the curtain.

A very professional and informative event. A variety of perspectives contributed to a thorough examination of the topic at hand. I look forward to participating in future events.
