My latest column in Vancouver magazine features Joel Solomon, the man who is having a huge influence on the green-business culture of this city. He’s also one of the mayor’s closest allies and a fascinating blend of entrepreneur, philanthropist and philosopher. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t people in town who are uneasy about him and his circle.
I should note that, since this article went to press, Joel and his group at Renewal have successfully concluded their first round of capital-gathering for the Renewal2 fund that they are building. (News release is here.)
