BIV on Roundhouse September 8: Iain Black: 'I've never seen anything like it'

On the latest show, co-host Hayley Woodin speaks to Iain Black, president and CEO of the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade, about the federal government’s proposed tax changes. According to Black, government got it wrong, and the changes on the table propose a redefinition of what it means to be a small business in Canada.

Later on, can public sector venture capitalists pick and nurture winners? Charles Plant from the University of Toronto's Impact Centre reviews the findings of his latest report.
