“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.
