In today's episode, Chuck talks about his optimism for Canada and Canadians, why the fight against climate change is a great business opportunity, and the importance of prioritizing home life and family.

In this episode she opens up about her humble childhood, how she and her husband built their family through adoption, and why despite her success, she still considers herself a lousy leader. Dawn has strong opinions about Canada’s energy future, the ever-shifting regulatory environment, and what it will take for men and women to truly share the leadership podium in business.
