1/11 - FWIW, & unsurprising given her expertise, @carolmliao nails it. I share many of her concerns. Despite looking into it since this conversation restarted, I can't uncover any good reason for "benefit corporations" under BC law. THREAD INCOMING #socent #CSR #ESG #companies
2/#Corporations in BC are already "benefit corporations", as best I can tell, less just the branding and/or (paid) certification. I've been a lawyer for 15 years, roughly the life since the BCE/People's cases, & have always advised directors to look after broader stakeholders.
3/I worry benefit corp or "B. Co" (I'm sure JUST COINCIDENCE it's so similar to @BCorporation brand) will imply that other corporations don't have same duties. Also, in trying to legislate "public benefit" may limit breadth of court (@SCC_eng) interpretation & oppression remedy.

I feel honored to present the winners of our 2018 @SEALAwards Environmental Journalism Awards. Without exaggeration, their work is the tip of the spear in fighting climate change. Why? Thread follows 1/ sealawards.com/environmental-…
Having an informed & engaged public is required to make the political, lifestyle & societal changes needed to mitigate (let alone beat) #climatechange. These great writers fight a battle on many fronts. Translating science & policy research into digestible content is HARD /2
I read 100s of applications for @SEALAwards Research Grant program receives (thanks to partner @BeInstrumentl). My brain hurts afterward. Explaining research like this - to our gnat-like attention spans - on a deadline & w/ few resources requires deep & irreplaceable skills /3
