On Tuesday October 18, I sat down with renowned scientist, environmentalist and broadcaster David Suzuki to discuss some of the challenges plaguing environmentalism in Canada today. Suzuki was in Toronto as part of the Planet in Focus Environmental Film Festival (Oct. 18 to 23, 2016) where he was named the 2016 PiF Canadian Eco-Hero. We met after his round table discussion with 10 of this country's leading young environmentalists. 

Phillip Dwight Morgan: How do we reconcile Canada's subscription to the myth of abundance with the fact that we're involved in so many extractive and environmental degrading practices?
