Dr. Norman Keevil, chairman of Teck Resources, has been honoured with the Fraser Institute's T. Patrick Boyle Founder's Award during a gala dinner in Vancouver on Nov. 17, 2010. The award recognizes excellence and accomplishment in the promotion of economic freedom and free market ideas.
"Dr. Keevil exhibits a level of entrepreneurial prowess that few can match," said Brett Skinner, Fraser Institute president. "Under his leadership, Teck has not only contributed immensely to the economic success of British Columbia and Canada, but also created employment opportunities for thousands of people around the world."
In accepting the award, Keevil thanked his family, friends, and associates for their indispensable contributions to the success of Teck. "I have to share this award with everybody who's worked with me. At Teck, our people are just as valuable as our ore reserves," he told the crowd of more than 500.
