#32: Ed Clark
Premier’s Business Advisor, Province of Ontario
Why he matters: Accomplished the impossible in our biggest province
Everybody knew Ontario’s liquor and beer stores were outdated, but nobody seemed able to fix them. Enter Ed Clark, TD’s former CEO, who led a review of government assets on behalf of Premier Kathleen Wynne. Thanks to Clark, beer and wine will finally be available in grocery stores. It’s a small change that speaks to the larger shifts that he’s pushing through, including the partial sale of Hydro One, Ontario’s electricity and transmission and distribution utility.
