Today I’m very pleased to interview Gordon Shank, an Innovation Award winning entrepreneur from Burnaby, British Columbia who actually left BC during the decade of darkness that was the 1990s under the BC NDP.
Shank has since returned to BC, but with the NDP possibly winning a majority this week, he has a message for all other business owners and voters:
Don't let the NDP win or we may see another exodus of people, businesses and entrepreneurs like Mr. Shank.
What I find most inspiring about his story is his life as a First Nations individual growing up in foster care, and then at age 18 setting out on his own and establishing his now flourishing business.
Do the NDP really want to drive away such a shining example of entrepreneurship?
Unfortunately, their record in every province seems to say yes.
