In April of 2018 a group of capital markets colleagues helped me launch “Suits and Boots”, a non-profit agency of investment industry professionals who support Canada’s resource industry.
We successfully launched a resource rally in Langley BC on May 26th, 2018 in support of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline. We also worked with four other groups that day as they staged simultaneous rallies across BC in support of the resource sector – making the combined efforts of all five groups the single largest resource rally ever held in Canada. Here is a link to a BNN interview I did about the Langley rally: https://bit.ly/2z6CagS
We are continuing our efforts over the summer as we launch the Suits and Boots BC Resource Tour. Outreach workers from our group will be visiting 35 resource communities across British Columbia to educate and inform Canadians about how important the resource sector is to our economy, and how we have become world-class leaders in ethical, environmentally sound management of our resource assets. The general public, local MLA’s, MP’s, Mayors, Councils, Trade Unions, Boards of Trade, Chambers of Commerce, community and other resource industry partners are invited to attend events.
