Margie McCain: The Soul of Money

By The Soul Booth

My guest in this episode of The Soul Booth has given away more money than most of us will ever dream of having. She’s a philanthropist, a feminist, an advocate, and an activist. And despite her extraordinary wealth, and the fact that she’s in her 80’s, Margaret McCain is busy with all those roles! Her nickname “Margie” reflects how down-to-earth she is, and you’ll find that out for yourself within the first few minutes of this podcast when we dig into the subject I was dying to talk about - the soul of money. What she has to say will probably surprise you. Some quick background notes first though; - Born Margaret Norrie, she married Wallace McCain before he started a little family business with his brother Harrison called McCain Foods (!) - In 1994, she became the first female Lieutenant Governor of New Brunswick. - She’s been a widow since Wallace died in 2011, and has 4 adult children (Michael, Scott, Eleanor, and Martha) 9 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchildren. - She’s a feisty champion for Canada’s youngest citizens. - She’s got a quick mind, a sharp wit, and a huge heart ! I think you’re really going to enjoy this organic conversation with a woman I consider a role-model and a hero. Stay tuned ;) Nancy *** You can support this podcast by visiting and signing up for a free membership.
