about

In Going for the Green: Conversations with Canada''s Business and Political Elite, Canada`s top captains of industry are removed from the confines of their plush offices and freed of their suits and ties to play a casual round of golf with Thompson. He proves that you can learn more about someone from spending four hours on the golf course than a week in the boardroom.
Tip it up with the likes of Pengrowth CEO Jim Kinnear and Research in Motion co-CEO Jim Balsillie as they discuss life on the oil patch and how best to autograph a blackberry. Break into the old boys` country club with Indian real estate mogul Rai Sahi and the first female executive vice-president in the energy sector, Dee Parkinson-Marcoux.
Multitask with duty-bound liberal Toronto mayor David Miller on the journeyman`s municipal course, then learn what makes Ontario Progressive Conservative leader John Tory tick on the exclusively blue-blood Rosedale. Peek into the Rolodexes of rock promoter Gerry Barad, Newfoundland premier Danny Williams, sports agent Brad Pelletier, and golf-designer-to-the-stars Thomas McBroom.
