The Manning Centre is a driving financial force behind a network of anti-Liberal Facebook pages pumping out political messaging and memes during the federal election campaign.

The Calgary-based organization, launched in 2005 by Reform Party founder Preston Manning, gave a total of $312,450 to a network of related third-party advertising groups that operate on Facebook and Instagram.

In most cases, the centre was the sole donor listed by those groups in disclosure forms filed with Elections Canada.
