Wasn't this man active with white supremacist organizations? POVish article?

Not that I know of, and I lived there under his "regime". Of course, in that time period there weren't very many white supremacists in Canada, not least because just about everybody people in Canada, at least the west, were white, except for the Indians, and they were not viewed as any kind of threat. Of course, any evidence that he was, feel free, etc. Gzuckier 17:36, 22 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
A bit late in the day to be answering this, but I suspect the person who posted the question originally was thinking of the period in the early-mid 1980s when Holocaust denier Jim Keegstra was a member of the federal Social Credit Party, and ran for the leadership in 1986. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:15, 28 March 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

What makes you think so? Is there another E. C. Manning? 117Avenue (talk) 09:30, 11 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, there is another E.C. Manning.

Named in memory of Ernest Callaway Manning (1890-1941), Chief Forester of British Columbia 1936-41; he was serving as wartime Assistant Timber Controller of Canada when he died in a plane crash. Obituary published in BC Forest Service Annual Report, 1941. Additional biographical information on file M.1.50 (received July 1964 & December 1981). Source: BC place name cards, or correspondence to/from BC's Chief Geographer or BC Geographical Names Office

Ernest C. Manning 1890-1941: "One of British Columbia's great public servants died Thursday in the Northern Ontario plane crash. There was no man to whom the people of this province owed a greater debt for self-sacrificing service than to Ernest C. Manning. His job was chief forester for his adopted province. It was indeed his mission in life. He was our ablest exponent of outdoors beauty and outdoors wealth.... The safe establishment and perpetuation of our timber resources was the chief end and ambition of his career. No civil servant in this part of the world ever gave himself more completely to his job, or more intelligently." (obituary, Vancouver Sun 7 February 1941. ) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:33, 11 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

49th Battalion[edit]

The source claiming Manning was in the 49th Battalion must be in error. That unit only existed from 1914 to 1920, and it was not a Militia unit - it was in the CEF. Likely it was the Edmonton Regiment that Manning joined. During the Second World War it did have a Militia unit in Alberta as well as an active unit in Europe. The Edmonton Regiment perpetuated the 49th Battalion, which probably caused the confusion. Indefatigable (talk) 19:48, 11 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
