In Memory of Jim Fulton, Executive Director (1993-2004)
When Jim first stormed into the tiny office that contained this then-fledgling foundation, he injected an air of energy, of possibility and, often most important, of bonhomie, that came to define the DSF. With Jim in the room, there was always a sense that, whatever we did, things would probably turn out for the better.
The David Suzuki Foundation is, today, the most influential environmental organization in the country — one of the most influential on the continent — and this is in large part due to Jim’s legacy of credible, compelling and unquestionably intelligent policy analysis and advice. It’s a legacy that will continue to serve this organization as we seek to serve all Canadians and, through the pursuit of sustainability, all the citizens of the world.
On behalf of those people — all the beneficiaries in all the years to come — the Board of Directors of the David Suzuki Foundation would like to say that we are deeply grateful: we are thankful to have called Jim Fulton a friend and colleague, grateful for his leadership and, perhaps above all, hopeful that his legacy will help guide us into a more truly sustainable future.
