Two new interviews! Sarika Cullis-Suzuki and Edmund Metatawabin!
Over the past few weeks, we’ve released two new Green Interviews with two remarkable Canadians. Sarika Cullis-Suzuki is a young scientist, a passionate advocate for the oceans, while Edmund Metatawabin is a remarkable Cree leader and writer who actually remembers daily life in a culture that was completely sustainable for 10,000 years.
When we first heard about Orri Vigfusson, we were completely astonished. This Icelandic businessman and environmentalist has nearly singlehandedly saved the North Atlantic salmon from a fate similar to the codfish. And he’s done it through “green capitalism.”
Over the past 17 years, Orri and his North Atlantic Salmon Fund have systematically bought and “retired” 85% of the world’s commercial North Atlantic salmon fishing licenses.

Tar sands oil and a regressive Conservative government are turning Canada into a “thuggish petro-state,” says acclaimed British journalist and climate-change expert George Monbiot.
“It’s an extraordinary thing to witness from this side of the Atlantic: to watch Canada, this highly sophisticated, liberal, outward-looking nation, turning into a thuggish petro-state,” Monbiot told Silver Donald Cameron in a new Green Interview conversation filmed recently in Oxford, England.
