    Dr. Cruise announces expansion. Note Premier Davis behind him.

James Cruise is appointed Director.  A botanist, he has been recruited from the University of Toronto. For the next decade, he oversees physical expansion and a new mission that is captioned “Meaningful Survival”. Almost immediately, the dream must be revised, as the provincial government cuts expansion funding and restricts the operating budget.

In the video, he reflects on his mandate and why he got the job.
