Getting out the (conservative?) Space Vote For a Fall Election

With luck the space folks will remember that the gov't has dragged its feet in developing a federal space policy, and that the Cons have no vision beyond cash. I know a lot of these guys - they all want to make money, but they mostly want to do exciting "big picture" stuff. The conservatives are sorely lacking in "big picture" thinking.

There is, of course, no doubt that MP Aspin is also hoping that this event takes off. As outlined in the November 30th, 2014 post, “Ambitious MP Announces Canadian “Space Caucus” Focused on the Economics and Business of Space,” the busy politician, still officially a “back-bencher” in the current Stephen Harper government, almost certainly hopes to win re-election by more than the eighteen vote margin he enjoyed in the 2011 election.
