Is it time for us all to think — and act — differently when it comes to rural Canada’s sustainability? Karen Foster thinks so, and she has some compelling arguments to back that up. Dr. Foster is Canada Research Chair in Sustainable Rural Futures at Dalhousie University. In this week’s episode, she tells us why smaller is often better, why the numbers don’t tell the whole story, and how new models of business and service delivery can build a better future for rural communities.
