I sincerely apologize for not being able to list everyone and all of you who have inspired us so much this year. I was only able to list a few names, but we’re both extremely grateful that we had the chance to meet and talk to all of you. You give us hope. It’s great to know that you – and people like you – are ‘out there’. Thank you all!!!
Here’s an excerpt from our www.ThisIsLeadership.org post:
“… The most amazing thing, something that we had not expected at all, was to meet all those other ‘leaders’, all those individuals that had taken up responsibility for themselves AND others – already long before us. There is Kent Rathwell who we met in Saskatchewan, the founder of Sun Country Highway, the electric car charging network that lets you drive, fully electric, from Victoria BC to St. John’s NL. He did this, and much more, to ensure transportation becomes sustainable.
There is Sylvain Juteau who we met in Quebec, the founder of Roulez Electrique, an EV Charging Station concept, that not only lets you charge any electric car even in the luxury of a heated indoor garage, but also offers advice, information, coffee, a place to have your own lunch, do business, have an afternoon snooze, rent electric bikes and even try out electric cars. He did that to ensure his three kids will have a healthy world to live in.
There is Joshua Green, a young guy we met in Newfoundland, who took it upon himself to organize the means and the location for a much-needed electric car charger in the middle of the island. He did this because nobody else did.
And there were so many more, Onanole Campground that gets its power from solar, Ian who is raising money for electric car associations by selling T-shirts online, Peavey Mart that is proud to be powered by renewables and offers electric car charging at most of their stores. …”
