Thomas J. Keil is an expert on reducing the regulatory burden of government. He has seen the impact of excessive regulation from both the inside and the outside. Representing industry for many years and recently serving in the role of Chief of Staff to the Associate Minister of Red Tape Reduction in Alberta has exposed T.J. to the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to government and politics. He is a Political Science graduate of the University of Alberta whose passion is to shrink the size of government and help people live freer and more prosperous lives. Sunshine and running are part of his ideal day, as are playing golf, watching hockey or baseball, woodworking, and looking for his next great sunset photo—ideally from Maui, as any honest Edmontonian would say.
