The show starts with Brad Zarnett, organizer of the Toronto Sustainability Speaker Series (TSSS) about an upcoming Wall St/Bay St and Sustainability event in TO. You can read more or sign up for this event here.

Our main interview this week is with Darcy Higgins – founder of FoodForward.

We close the show with the discussion of a few news items, including an update on the ongoing CBC – speaking fees issue from last week. If you missed our episode with Andrew Mitrovica discussing this issue you can click here, and below is the articles we referenced this week.
