Video: Tory buttons a hit at Manning Conference

Small- and big-C conservatives milled about the Ottawa Convention Centre between talks at the 2014 Manning Networking Conference. Some were decked out in obvious partisan fashion choices that ranged from blue dresses with white heels to navy suits and cyan ties, but one item cropped up again and again—buttons from a do-it-yourself station run by M Printhouse, which runs printing services for a strictly right-leaning clientele. One Toronto-themed button was so wildly popular, that the company added a new design on Saturday, the last day of the conference.
