*Note from Chamber Executive Director Lilia Hansen – I’ve been fortunate to hear Stewart Muir present in the past.  His message & expertise is worth getting up early for!  His message is one that resonates with most in our community and one that the rest of Canada needs to also hear – “responsible development of resources, creates jobs and income, while maintaining a healthy environment”.  

Stewart is a change leader with a crisp vision for interdisciplinary solutions across a vast range of problems facing society, government and business. He created the Resource Works Society in Vancouver, B.C. to catalyze better dialogue on the environment and the economy. The project, launched in 2014, has been publicly praised by leaders such as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and B.C Premier Christy Clark. He was lead writer of the official report of the 2011 Stanley Cup Riot Review and his 13,000-word serial report “Merciful Injustice: The Killing of Yoshiyuki Uno”, which exposed a Vancouver race incident, debuted on the front page of The Vancouver Sun and ran over six consecutive days in 2013. As a business transformation expert, Stewart led culture-change elements of a nation-wide systems implementation for the CanWest publishing group, later founding, as managing director, Pagemasters North America in Toronto to reimagine the newsroom workflows of two of Canada’s largest newspapers, The Globe and Mail and the Toronto Star, and market the efficiency model to large organizations in the United States newspaper industry. He was deputy managing editor (and previously business editor and national editor) of The Vancouver Sun until 2009, having previously founded Different Drum magazine in Australia and held leadership roles at publications in his native Alberta and Hong Kong. His recent accomplishments at Resource Works reflect his longstanding interest in the big challenges facing society’s use of energy and resources. As a historian with degrees from Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia, Stewart later undertook postgraduate studies in global environmental change and economic botany as a NUFFIC Fellow at Leiden University in The Netherlands. He is a past two-term director of The Nature Trust of British Columbia, which takes a collaborative approach to strengthening biodiversity across the province with its portfolio of over 400 properties.
Chris Montgomery from the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers will also be presenting on Tuesday May 3 at the breakfast meeting, 7:00am. 

CAPP represents companies, large and small, that explore for, develop and produce natural gas and crude oil throughout Canada. 
CAPP’s mission, on behalf of the Canadian upstream oil and gas industry, is to advocate for and enable economic competitiveness and safe, environmentally and socially responsible performance.
Bio:  Chris Montgomery currently serves as the Manager, Exploration and Production Communications and Outreach for the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers.  Prior to joining CAPP, Chris spent his career in Ottawa providing advice to senior Cabinet Ministers, and serving as a political organizer.
