The cultural and political landscape around cannabis is changing quickly. At the forefront of this shift is Carleton University alumnus Bruce Linton, BPA/92, founder and CEO of Canopy Growth Corporation. The entrepreneur is building an industry for which there are significant economic and social good implications at the local and national levels.
“Now that we’re on the verge of legal access to regulated, recreational cannabis, we’re stepping up to do our part to ensure education and responsible use are at the forefront of the cannabis conversation,” Linton says.
Linton previously worked at telecom company Newbridge Networks and, among other notable roles, was the president of the Carleton University Student Association in the late 1980s when he was an undergraduate.
