Bob Desautels’ granddaugther Ava visiting the banks of the Speed River, Guelph, Ontario.

For Bob Desautels, Founder of The Neighbourhood Group of Companies (NGC), it all got started back in the late 60’s when the progressive rock group The Moody Blues released one of their iconic classic albums entitled; "To Our Children’s Children’s Children.”

"To me the message of that album was very clear and poignant,” says Desautels. "It made me always think of the future in dictating what I do today! My overall guiding philosophy and decision making process has been best summed-up by this philosophy. I believe we have no alternative as "There is No Planet B!”. Acting locally with environmentally sustainable business practices is really for our Children’s Children’s Children.”
