Let’s keep building the conservative movement

A few words about this after the press release!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Stephen Taylor Joins the National Citizens Coalition

OTTAWA (December 7, 2010)

The National Citizens Coalition is pleased to announce the appointment of Stephen Taylor as a Director.

“Stephen Taylor is one of the brightest minds in the country that is currently involved in social media,” says Peter Coleman President and CEO of the National Citizens Coalition. “Together we will be able to provide increased insight and information to a greatly expanded number of Canadians both in the main stream media as well as in the vastly growing internet and social media universe”.

““I am looking forward to the opportunity of working with the NCC to advance their principles of individual freedom and responsible government by engaging the growing movement online”,” Taylor said of his new role in the organization.

The National Citizens Coalition has had a great deal of success in this field, with a burgeoning blog following and constant updates. With the addition of Stephen Taylor’s expertise and visibility, the NCC will be even better positioned to interact with concerned citizens, social media users, politicians and journalists.

“As all levels of government and most non government organizations are exploring and expanding their use of social media, it is very important to stay on the leading edge of this technology. As more and more Canadians turn to these sources for political news and discussion, the NCC will remain an important destination,” added Coleman.

The National Citizens Coalition is Canada’s largest organization that stands for the defense and promotion of free enterprise, free speech and a government that is accountable to the taxpayer. Founded in 1967, the NCC continues to fight for more freedom through less government.

    “talking to you/your outlets about conservatism in Canada and advancing free-market principles”

    Better pick one, they don’t go well together.

    Right on Stephen! Much congratulations!

    Congratulations, Stephen! A win-win situation as far as I can see: a great opportunity for you and the NCC benefits from your media savvy.

    ‘Glad to hear you’ll be maintaining this blog. ‘Hope that works out, though I guess you’ll have to see just how busy you are.

    If you were an actor, I’d say “break a leg.” Hmmm … what to say in this case? “Bust a few left-lib heads” … uh, ‘just joking! ;-)

    Congratulations Stephen and a belated welcome to the Ottawa area

    Congrats Stephen. Do yourself proud and turn the NCC back into a principle based idea generator it once was. The world has enough partisan bootlickers; we don’t need our think tanks playing that role.

    Glad to hear you’ll be keeping up the blog.

    Congrats! I am glad you will keep the Blogging Tories going.

    Congratulations and best wishes on the new gig. This means I lose my bet that you’d go to SUN TV. Damn.

    Like Ted, I wouldn’t mind hearing the NCC call out the CPC on the ways they aren’t fulfilling their conservative mandate. Openness, transparancy and accountability spring to mind…

    MASSIVE CONGRATS! Way to go, Steve!

    Congratulations Stephen – good to hear.

    Shameless hijack of your blog for a moment.

    Tis the season for a friendly blogger challenge – to put down our punditry and complaining for a moment to do some small act for someone else – and then blog about it and challenge others to do the same.

    Your mission if you choose it:

    Small Hero Challenge

    I hear Ottawa is a very small community socially, what do you do to keep yourself entertained there? Is there a good social life available?

    Trudeau’s fawning for a Chinese Government in Canada, should be accentuated with the reality of modern day Liberalism.

    When the Liberals abandoned their namesake, they abandoned us all.
