Keynote Speaker: David Frum

David Frum is a senior editor at The Atlantic, a CNN contributor, and a former special assistant to George W. Bush. He has made himself known in recent years as a forceful voice for a Republican agenda more attentive to the middle class and more concerned with environmental issues, including climate change. Frum will offer analysis and prediction for the future of US energy policy - and insight into how Canadians can gain a better hearing for their distinctive interests and values in the US policy debate.
