The tale of The Leap so far

After a little over a week on tour with The Leap, here are a few highlights:

Canadian Geographic published a thoughtful and very positive review of the book by noted journalist Marq de Villers (in brief: "an argument of considerable reach and subtlety" by a writer who is "an engaging tour guide, mixing reportage with conversation, anecdote and artfully inserted research")

Toronto urban affairs writer Edward Keenan wrote a review/meditation on The Leap for the excellent Toronto weekly The Grid

The Winnipeg Free Press reviewed The Leap as well (in brief: "a believable mélange of individual, corporate, state and grassroots innovations and actions already proven on the city-wide, or even national scale")

My local alternative weekly, Calgary's FFWD Weekly, featured me in a cover profile story

Another careful review appeared at the By the Book Reviews blog

I appeared on CTV News Channel (alongside WWF Canada's Zoe Caron) to discuss the costs of climate change and the necessity of The Leap

I had a great chat with David Gray on The Eyeopener, CBC Radio's Calgary morning show

Joseph Planta posted a phone interview with me to Thecommentary.ca, his long-running author profile site

I wrote an op-ed for the Ottawa Citizen in defence of Ontario's Green Energy Act, which is a direct copy of the German feed-in tariff that is a central case study in The Leap

I wrote a feature essay on the Alberta oil pipeline controversy for The Globe & Mail

Much more to come as the tour rolls on across western Canada.
