Hi, I’m Goldy Hyder, President and CEO of the Business Council of Canada.

You’re listening to Speaking of Business – conversations with Canadian innovators, entrepreneurs and business leaders.

Folks, I don’t need to tell you that these are extraordinary times.

In light of the COVID-19 emergency, we’ve temporarily suspended our regularly scheduled series of conversations with Canadian CEOs.

But we’re not going away. Instead, we’re going to pivot to the health emergency itself.

We’re going to explore the impact on companies and workers across the country. And we’re going to find out how business leaders are responding to crisis.

My guest today is Michael McCain, President and CEO of Maple Leaf Foods, one of North America’s leading food producers with 13,000 employees and operations in Canada, the United States and Asia.

Also joining me is Michael Burns, President and CEO of the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation in Toronto.

These two guys have really stepped up to help front-line health workers and the fight against COVID-19, so let’s talk about what they’re doing and how others can help.
