Big Fish from Little Ponds: Can Canada's Regional Companies Succeed in the Global Economy?


How the regional companies with which the speaker is associated--and others--are adapting to new global markets and how our governments need to rethink their relationships with regionally based organisations. Some personal reminiscences. Lessons from the Moosehead product. The Maritime economy and how it differs from other Canadian regional economies. The goal of reaching beyond the Maritimes. Challenges with this realignment of trade. The need for a new east-west superhighway. Access to market. Protectionism. Ways in which New Zealand and Maritime Canada share many of the same problems. Lessons for Canadian industries in the nether regions. The problem of attitudes. Provincial disparities. The need for regional realignments taking root in Canada to be encouraged and to succeed.
