Looking for Bootstraps with Donald Savoie
In this episode, Mitch speaks with Donald Savoie, Order of Canada recipient and author of 45(!) books, including the NBBA-nominated Looking for Bootstraps: Economic Development in the Maritimes. Here Savoie speaks on the economic history and future of the region, including the push-pull relationship between locals and shale gas; the cultural secret to combating brain-drain among young Maritimers; why the conversations about national unity in Canada don’t often focus on Atlantic Canada and the ultimate value of an economic union within the Maritimes. Produced by Julia De Laurentiis Johnson for Church + State.
