Ezra Levant to Speak at Oil & Gas Conference

Ezra Levant added to Fort Nelson Oil & Gas Conference Lineup

For Immediate Release

Organizers of the 2011 BC Oil & Gas Conference have just announced the addition of TV anchor, newspaper columnist, author and self proclaimed general troublemaker, Ezra Levant to their speaker lineup. The conference is set for September 7th through 9th in Fort Nelson with Levant speaking on September 9th.

Ezra Levant knows when to talk - but he knows when to rant, too! As Canada's best-known Conservative pundit, Levant's talks are energetic, entertaining, articulate, insightful, controversial, and sure to provoke a great deal of discussion and debate.

“Regardless if you agree or disagree with Levant and his unique perspective, his presentation is certain to create discussion”, state conference organizers.

After graduating from law school, Levant went to Ottawa as a parliamentary assistant to Preston Manning.

Levant joined the editorial board of The National Post newspaper, shortly after its founding. His beat included national politics, the Supreme Court and the Middle East.

In 2004, Levant became the founding publisher of the Western Standard magazine and is the author of Shakedown, a book examining the illiberal nature of Canadian human rights commissions. His new book called, Ethical Oil: The Case for Canada's Oilsands, was published in September 2010 and won the National Business Book Award in Spring 2011.

To the relief of his wife, Levant finally got a real job this Spring, when he joined the new Sun TV all-news channel as the host of a daily talk show called “The Source”.

An entertaining and popular speaker on the circuit, Levant spoke this spring at the BC Chamber of Commerce Annual General Meeting in Prince George.
