E=R... Canadian-style

I saw this tweet yesterday afternoon from @unleashingideas:

"...long term, economic growth will be generated from private sector, innovation and entrepreneurship..." PM Harper

That's an awful big message to pack into 140 characters or less. It refers to a recent interview that Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper gave to the Financial Times. The interview ranges from the G20 Summit to bi-lateral relations with the new Obama Administration to Canada's role in the war on terror. Take a look at the transcript or listen to an audio recording of the interview.

But the part that piqued our interest obviously was the prime minister's faith in entrepreneurs to pull us all from this global recession. A few weeks ago, he showed his commitment to shaping the future generation of entrepreneurs by carving $10 million from Canada's Economic Action Plan to invest in the Canadian Youth Business Foundation. CYBF provides start-up mentoring, financing and business resources to help young Canadians start new enterprises.

This coming November, CYBF will serve as the Canadian host for a global initiative that promotes the same goals and objectives, Global Entrepreneurship Week.

Entrepreneurship = Recovery... indeed.
