CCMEC 2019

Save the date for this year!

November 18th – 19th, 2019

Victoria Inn, Winnipeg, MB

2019 KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Rex Murphy

Title: The Future of Canadian Resources

Rex Murphy has seen (and heard) it all when it comes to policy & ideas aimed at developing industries. He was the host of CBC Radio One’s Nationwide call-in show Cross Country Checkup for 21 years and offered regular Canadian commentary segments throughout his stint on CBC’s The National. He currently writes for The National Post. From the collapse of Newfoundland’s fishing industry by the cod moratorium of 1992, to the boom of Alberta’s oil sands in the early 2000s, and the pipeline debates of recent years, Rex has seen the high’s and lows of Canadian industry. Unlike most commentators, he’s actually interacted with people from coast-to-coast to get a balanced perspective.

A Rhodes Scholar, Rex was born and raised in St. John’s, Nfld., where he graduated from Memorial University. He went to Oxford University, along with former U.S. President Bill Clinton. Rex later ran twice in provincial elections and lost both times. Maybe he was too honest?
