John Geiger and Stephen Harper
As the financial relationship between the RCGS and the federal government flourished, so too has the public relationship between RCGS CEO John Geiger and Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Geiger has lent the Prime Minister the approval of his venerable institution - perhaps the oldest non-profit environmental group in Canada.
