Sustainable resource management deputy minister Jon O'Riordan retired from the provincial government four years ago. But that doesn't mean he's done giving the Campbell administration policy advice. In an interview with Public Eye, Simon Fraser University program director Deborah Harford confirmed Mr. O'Riordan will be the author of her Adaptation to Climate Change Team's first policy paper. That paper, which is expected to be released in mid-June, will make recommendation on how government should respond to climate change impacts on plant and animal species. Mr. O'Riordan has been involved with the project since September 2007.
