“The land development industry is so sophisticated. I’ve learned a lot working on this project, and I respect how much work goes into every step of the process. I believe the Chinese will eventually play a much bigger role in this industry. Right now, it’s just the beginning. There are a lot of potential buyers and developers who want to get into this industry, but they don’t know how. The industry is totally different here; in China, the land is owned by the government, it’s not privately owned. Here, there is so much potential. I feel a personal responsibility to educate Chinese investors to help them get into the industry, to learn the Canadian way of development.”
Interesting Facts:
Thomas recently took up skiing because of a future resort development that Lemine will be working on at Blue Mountain.
Jessica is a strong LGBQT supporter, and she is also looking forward to building her own home for her family.
