Shed a tear for the Calgary-based Manning Centre, which Postmedia's Cowtown website of record sadly reported yesterday is "stepping back from its advocacy work."

Since polishing up Tiny Tories to make them acceptable for election door-knocking and serving as a launch pad for development-industry-financed attacks on Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi is about all the Manning crowd did most days of the year -- in other words, partisan advocacy work -- that sounds as if the end is nigh for the 13-year-old right-wing boiler room.

There's even a for-lease sign on the Manning Centre's funkily old-timey headquarters on the stretch of Calgary's 11th Avenue once known as "Electric Avenue." Has the plug been pulled?
