Fraser Institute senior fellow Mark Milke was the keynote speaker at the Canadata Construction Industry Forecasts Conference, held in Vancouver on October 23, 2014.
His talk, "Asian Markets, Proposed Energy Projects and Native Land Claim Issues" covered a wide swath of topics with a direct impact on British Columbia's present and future economic growth.
Milke spoke of opportunities and challenges for the province in the LNG space, and warned that pessimism would be the undoing of progress in B.C.
He also cautioned B.C. to look beyond its borders to the opportunities over the Rocky Mountains in Alberta and elsewhere in Canada.
