Have a great weekend folks, hopefully the rain will stop, but maybe my grass needs it?

    $50 is a lot of money too. Say for a popsicle 🙂

    The consensus seems to be that CPP changes are marginally negative for those who take it early, slightly positive for those who take it late and neutral for those who take it at 65. Thanks for the link!

    Thanks for the mention! I guess $50 billion is a lot of money in Canada. The US has been burning trillions lately.
