Interview opportunities from the March issue of Report on Business magazine

TORONTO, Feb. 23 /CNW/ - We may be recognized globally as Hockey Nation, but could soccer soon dethrone Canada's game? Jeff Mallett—the Canadian gazillionaire who kick-started Yahoo and owns a chunk of baseball's World Series-winning San Francisco Giants—thinks so. The Globe and Mail sports reporter Michael Grange shines a spotlight on Mallet's new business plan: building a soccer factory to produce the next Beckham.

Searching for the Solar System
In its quest for a green-energy cure-all, Ontario went all-out to create an instant solar power industry.

The Rainmakers
When big business wants to throw its weight around, who do they call if there's an elected official standing in the way? A former elected official, of course.
