The show and full interview:
A group of community leaders gathered one Saturday morning in Cobourg to hear a speaker from Ireland talk about creating a sustainable community.
Cormac Russell is a highly regarded expert in helping organizations and citizens build stronger communities. Russell has given multiple TED Talks and is recognized worldwide within the ranks of bureaucracies, politics, and citizen groups.
Representatives from Northumberland County, Northumberland Hills Hospital, churches, social agencies, and chambers of commerce, plus community groups, listened intently to his message.
In this interview, Russell and his Canadian colleague Jon Massimi will share what they said at the event. In light of the recent number of public meetings where residents are expressing their frustrations, Russell’s words are even more poignant.
