Catching up with the News: 7690 Dr. Craig Riddell Honoured as Fellow of the Canadian Economics Association & 19330 Michael Della Fortuna Takes Over as Chair of the Board for Drone Delivery Canada

The following is courtesy of 7723 Paul Beswick.

I wanted to share with you information on a recent honour received by my good friend and 1968 RMC classmate, #7690, Dr. Craig Riddell.

A nationally and internationally renowned labour economist and  longtime Vancouver resident, Craig is currently a “retired” professor-emeritus in the Vancouver School of Economics at the University of British Columbia – https://economics.ubc.ca/faculty-and-staff/w-craig-riddell/

I say “retired” because he continues to publish, attend and speak at economic conferences around the world (virtually right now) and participate on expert panels and advisory committees at the federal and provincial level – https://econ2017.sites.olt.ubc.ca/files/2017/11/CV_Craig_Riddell_August_2017.pdf

Recently, Craig received the very prestigious honour of being one of three 2020 inductees as a Fellow of the Canadian Economics Association – https://www.economics.ca/cpages/fellows and https://www.economics.ca/cpages/fellows-riddell
