It was billed as an opportunity for networking and bridge-building among Canadian conservatives, but this year's Manning Centre Conference was also a product of its time.

As attendees gathered in Ottawa on Friday, there were the usual calls for unity within the right-of-centre, promises of prudent spending in government and a healthy dose of Liberal-bashing in the conference rooms.

What was perhaps new, however, were the "Make America Great Again" ball caps that dotted the hallways, the open discussions about "front organizations" for the Muslim Brotherhood in Canada, and an appearance by none other than Doug Ford, who made the trip from Toronto to bash the "mainstream media" and "the elites."
