“The Rideau Institute is an excellent partner…”

We just received this generous endorsement from the Canadian Auto Workers union’s Director of Communications, Shannon Devine:

The Rideau Institute is an excellent partner, providing timely research, in-depth analysis and broad communications outreach. We’ve worked with the Rideau Institute for at least two high profile policy initiatives – stopping the sale of Canadian space robotics and satellite technology company MDA to an American munitions manufacturer and responding to the proposed government procurement of F-35 fighter jets. In both cases, the CAW was thrilled with the collaboration and the success it brought.

In solidarity,

Shannon Devine
