On a special edition of the podcast, David Campbell chats with Malcolm Bricklin, the entrepreneur behind the Bricklin SV-1 that was manufactured in New Brunswick in the 1970s. David and Malcolm talk about auto manufacturing in the province back then, the role of Premier Hatfield and what went wrong. Bricklin shares anecdotes about his interactions with Elon Musk, Henry Kissinger and Slobodan Milošević, among others.
In his 80s and showing no signs of slowing down, the CEO of Visionary Vehicles is back with a new electric vehicle project, the Bricklin 3EV. This conversation was the keynote event at the Town of Riverview annual Sustaina-Palooza conference in April. The three-day virtual event featured 40 speakers from 14 countries leading a conversation about innovative leadership within the sustainability sector.
