Don Bowser, Anti-Corruption Expert
Don Bowser, President of I.M.P.A.C.T. (Business)
Mr. Bowser has a great line in our conversation, “It is hard for me to find work in New Brunswick, so I have to travel the world instead. It seems there is no interest in corruption in New Brunswick.” It was said with tongue-in-cheek … to a degree. Corruption is a major problem and challenge in New Brunswick, and Mr. Bowser walks us through some key perspectives and shares some stories of his work. At the heart of each is a central theme … we can be doing so much better in New Brunswick.
