Earlier, we reported Premier Gordon Campbell had cancelled his keynote speech at this year's Roundup conference. However, in an email, Association for Mineral Exploration British Columbia president and chief executive officer Gavin Dirom clarified the premier, "did not cancel his keynote address at Roundup. His office had never confirmed his keynote speaker role. We were optimistic that he'd be available, but that is not the case." The association is responsible for organizing that conference.
