Former Reform Party leader Preston Manning has announced his retirement from the political think tank and advocacy group that bears his name.

It won't have his name for much longer: the Manning Centre for Building Democracy has announced a rebranding effort for the the organization and the high-profile conferences it organizes.

Manning Centre president Troy Lanigan told CBC News that the 78-year-old former MP, who founded the organization in 2005, is leaving the centre behind so he can spend more time with his family.
