Communication of ideas drives our philanthropy, so projects that foster hybrid thoughts and the kind of fresh thinking needed to generate solutions interest me us. Canada needs big visions. We like this one. That’s why we decided to contribute. The Trans Canada Trail is an excellent way to link Canadians together. We believe it will encourage Canadians to experience our country’s beauty and variety and also draw visitors from outside of Canada, which can only help foster the exchange of ideas. The TCT makes a strand – a link across this magnificent country – that helps solidify us. We should encourage more Canadians to see Canada. Our advice: a great way to do it is to get out and start walking the Trail.
