EDMONTON—A business communications conference scheduled to take place in Banff Monday has removed controversial writer and researcher Vivian Krause as its keynote speaker.

According to an older version of the schedule for the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) Canada West Conference, Krause was slated to deliver a presentation Monday morning on how to "communicate effectively in high-stakes, emotionally charged situations."

Based on her research, Krause has repeatedly claimed that activist groups opposing the construction of Alberta pipelines have been backed by foreign funds — a conclusion that has been criticized by industry and environmental experts.
