Rendez-Vous at the TSX
Late this September, Corporate Knights editors Toby Heaps and Melissa Shin caught up with legend of green David Suzuki at the Toronto Stock Exchange.
The Exchange is the central organ that breathes life into the economy, and one Suzuki has often exhorted for its blinkered assault on the environment.
But the “Suz’s” rendez-vous on Bay Street makes perfect sense. After all, the TSX is now home to more cleantech companies than any other exchange in the world. Many of these companies, like geothermal player Magma Energy, have the know-how to dramatically transform our society to live in greater harmony with the planet. The question is, will they do it from a Canadian base? The answer, Suzuki suggests, depends in large part on whether Canadians can believe in ourselves and think big—for a change.
