Short Sunday Post: Why I Spoil My Ballot

Hey, I haven’t done one of these in a while.

Canada’s federal election is tomorrow, and I will definitely be at the polling station, like many more of you. I’ll do things a little differently though, intentionally spoiling my ballot.

Short Sunday Post: No Internet

For about a week, I was without internet. What was wrong?

When the garbage truck came down my back alley last week, it snapped the phone line going into my house. One would think that if they snapped a phone line, they would be able to hear it and maybe leave a little note for the homeowner. I guess that would be taking responsibility for one’s actions.

Short Sunday Post: Market Call Guests

If you’re a Canadian stock market investor, chances you’ve watched an episode or two of Market Call. If you’re unfamiliar with the show, various fund managers and financial experts go on the show to answer viewers’ questions on stocks. I used to watch it every day, however lately I don’t watch it as often as I used to.

Who are your favorite guests on the show? Mine are Benj Gallander, (obviously) Brian Acker and Peter Hodson.
