"The world's premier technical exploration conference." That's how the Association for Mineral Exploration British Columbia describes its annual Roundup conference. But, despite its prominence, an association spokesperson confirmed today that Premier Gordon Campbell has cancelled a keynote speech he was scheduled to deliver on day three of that conference, as part of an awards dinner. Asked whether a replacement has been found, the spokesperson said, "No. We're just going ahead with the rest of the awards agenda."
