In September, we brought you the sad news about the passing of Czech-Canadian industrialist and shoe empire magnate, Thomas Bata. As they say, behind every great man is a great woman. Thomas Bata’s wife Sonja is perhaps best known for her passion for collecting shoes and the founding of the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto. What is less known is her passion for environmental and social work.

On December 3rd, CBC’s The Hour featured Sonja Bata in an interview with George Stroumboulopoulos. Here is the video.
