Former Green Party Justice Critic Dimitri Lascaris, and Victoria Foundation’s Rob Janus

Dimitri Lascaris is a lawyer called to practice in Ontario and New York State. After working in the New York and Paris offices of a major Wall Street law firm, Dimitri became a class action lawyer in Canada. His class actions practice focused on shareholder rights, environmental wrongs and human rights violations. In 2012, Canadian Lawyer Magazine named him one of the 25 most influential lawyers in Canada, and in 2013, Canadian Business Magazine named him one of the 50 most influential persons in Canadian business. Until recently, Dimitri was the Justice Critic in the Green Party of Canada shadow cabinet. He is the author and submitter of the Green Party of Canada’s BDS resolution.  We talk about the BDS resolution, why he wrote and supports it, what’s next in the process.

Rob Janus is Director of Communications with the Victoria Foundation, a registered charity that “connects visionary donors with causes that truly matter.”  Their 11th annual “Vital Signs” report has just been released, measuring the health of the city, and Rob explains some of its significant findings.
