Our very special guest is former Toronto Mayor David Miller. David Miller was the president and CEO of WWF Canada, the Canadian division of the international World Wildlife Fund. A former politician, Miller was the 63rd Mayor of Toronto from 2003 to 2010, and served as a Toronto Councillor before his role as Mayor. He is now the North American director for C40 Cities.
David has spent his life working for people in need, the environment, and doing the right thing – informed by his experiences growing up in the church.
This is an exciting episode, as I had the opportunity to speak to somebody I very much admire about his faith and his drive to make the world a better place. We talked about David’s experience coming to Canada and sometimes feeling like an outsider, and his belief in the Golden Rule. Ultimately, his belief in doing the right thing and in his own ability led to his successful run as Mayor of Toronto. We also discussed the rituals in church and how his faith has evolved and helped to shape his views on social issues.
