We were an early supporter of the TCT; our commitment goes back about 10 years. We see the Trail as an extension of the national dream, one that aligns well with our views as a Quebec-based company with a Canadian vision and a strong sense of corporate duty towards society. Environmentally, the TCT is also a good fit for Power Corporation. Although we have a very low ecological impact, we give substantially to environmental causes. By showcasing the environment and making natural areas more accessible for public enjoyment, we believe the TCT encourages in Canadians a desire to experience, enjoy, preserve and protect the environment. With the finish line now within sight, we are proud to have come on board as one of the first Chapter 150 donors to contribute to the Trail’s completion by 2017.
