UPDATE: Because ITQ is nothing if not obsessively thorough, here are some of the resolutions that were passed by the respective workshops, but will not go forward to the plenary session.

From the social and democratic policy workshop:

LAST MINUTE UPDATE: The ADQesque reasonable accommodation totally non-controversial diversity principle resolution will go forward after all!

P-218 – Diversity Principles
PROPOSED BY VICTORIA AND PRINCE EDWARD – HASTINGS
The Conservative Party believes that Canada’s multicultural society is a valued reality and accepts the need to foster understanding and equality of opportunity, while
promoting common values across Canada expecting Canadians to adopt Canadian common values such as equality, democracy, and the rule of law.

P-219 – Amateur Sport
PROPOSED BY CAUCUS MEMBER(S)
The Conservative Party recognizes the value of promoting amateur sport as a means of building legacy and heritage in local communities, and as a means of serving future generations of athletes. International success in sport projects like the Olympics and Paralympics also creates a positive view of Canada and of the success of Canadian society. We will help develop tax incentives to support and increase participation in local and top-tier international sporting events. An investment in amateur sport is an investment in future Canadian leaders and builds Canadian representatives around the world.

P-220 – Amateur Sport
PROPOSED BY EDMONTON CENTRE
The Conservative Party believes amateur sport and physical recreation assist in developing good health and well-being in Canadians of all ages. Participation in such activities is encouraged in schools, institutions of further and higher education and sports organizations, thus reducing healthcare costs. The Conservative Party supports tax incentives to encourage participation in local and top-tier international sporting events and providing funding for national sports centers in
partnership with provinces and territories.

From the economic policy workshop:

P-310 Intellectual Property – Patent Legislation
PROPOSED BY BRANDON SOURIS

34. The Conservative Party will create a process to allow the patent holder to restore time lost on 20 year patent protection due to delays in government approvals. [From current policy declaration]

Delete all.

(I don’t yet have a list of the resolutions that were passed at the health and safety workshop, but when I get my hands on one, I’ll update this post to include the ones that didn’t make it to the final agenda.)
