Sharing Borders, Opportunities and Challenges with our Canadian Neighbors

I had the pleasure of having lunch this week with Stephen Brereton, Consul General of the Consulate General 
of Canada.  Our conversation revealed many similarities shared by the U.S. and Canada around sustainable development.  In the midst of today’s economic struggles, it’s not surprising that citizens in both countries put the economy and jobs as top priorities, followed by education and healthcare, and somewhere around fifth place (or so, depending on where you live and your perspectives) the environment comes on the list.

A New Year and a New World Awaits

I woke up New Year’s Day in Mont Tremblant, Canada, in the beautiful home of friends from the U.K.  As I walked into their open, light-filled kitchen, I saw my 5 friends sitting at a large dark wood table surrounded by a wall of windows revealing snow covered trees and mountains.

Each had a coffee mug and a Mac with their iPhones nearby. Looking over their silver rectangle screens with the Apple logo, they greeted me - “Happy New Year”.
