Dates of existence



The Brandon Liberal Conservative Association emerged in Brandon in the mid-1880s. Thomas Mayne Daly served as President of the Association and was elected to parliament in 1887 as the member for the Selkirk constituency. For a few years in the 1940s, the association's function changed temporarily as the Conservative Party of Manitoba entered into a coalition with the Liberal Party. Meetings were held in conjunction with the Manitoba Liberal Association. Throughout the existence of the Conservative Association, two smaller groups, the Ladies Conservative Association and the Young Conservatives Club, were directly associated with the Conservative Association and regularly sent delegates to meetings of the larger association. In October 1943, following the election of Manitoba Progressive John Bracken as leader of the federal Conservative party, the official name of the party and therefore the association changed to the Progressive Conservative Association. The Association continued in existence until 2003 when the Canadian Reform Conservative Alliance merged with the Progressive Conservative Party to form the Conservative Party of Canada. Prominent members of the association included Thomas Mayne Daly, David Beaubier, George Dinsdale, Mayor Stephen Adolph Magnacca, Walter Dinsdale, W. Leland Clark. Rick Borotsik was the last person to represent Brandon as a Progressive Conservative.
