Episode Description

Join us on this week’s Capital Thinking with host Kevin O'Neill, as he is joined first by Internet legal gurus, Deborah Lodge, Mark Ellison and Chris Adams, to continue their discussion from last week regarding the International Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers' (ICANN) review of new generic top-level domain names, or gTLDs. The team will explain what "Reveal Day" is, highlight its importance and detail the subsequent processes that will take place. Next, in our second "doing business in Canada" series with lawyers from the Canadian law firm of McCarthy Tetrault, Kevin will speak first with Rachel Solyom, an expert on the province of Quebec. Rachel will lay out key points that U.S. companies and business owners should know about this predominately French speaking region, and the second largest administrative division in Canada, before considering doing business there. Then, Kevin will be joined by Lara Nathans, leader of McCarthy's consumer and retail group, to discuss the existing retail environment and the challenges and prospects of Canada's changing retail landscape.
