Speakers for Keepers of the Water VI: Our Waters are One
September 26-29, 2012 · Fort Nelson, BC
BEN PARFITT
Resource Policy Analyst, Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives
Researcher, POLIS Institute, University of Victoria

Mr. Parfitt joined the BC Office of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives four years ago as its resource policy analyst. As a long-time writer on BC's bountiful natural resources and the huge challenges involved in managing them in environmentally and socially responsible ways, he jumped at the opportunity to broaden his research 'and to spread some innovative ideas around' with the CCPA.

Mr. Parfitt values being part of a great team at the CCPA as well as the opportunities provided to meet regularly with environmental activists and the many people who work in the province's resource industries and who are committed to progressive change.
