Nortel Delisted

in Financial Apocalypse, Government, Nortel, Ontario Government, Stats Canada, Stock Market

An article from 2009, I had just found my new job (hadn’t started it yet) but still held some ill will to the folks who laid me off.

No Nortel on TSX

Nortel delisted in June 2009, and thus another sorry Canadian story ends with a whimper and not a bang. Nortel the company will not be back, as it was (it may return much like Mitel did, much smaller and weaker) but maybe that is a good thing. Hopefully the remaining employees will mostly keep their jobs, but for those who have had their pensions torn apart, their severance lost and their savings decimated, not much else can be said either.

Canada is Growing 33,592,686 Strong!

Stats Canada says that in the first quarter of 2009.

Canada’s population increased by 0.26% in the first quarter of 2009, the fastest first-quarter growth rate since 2001.

Cool! Ontario’s population is over 13,000,000 , which is also interested, but I am interested to see where these people moved into, large urban centers would be my guess.

      Interesting phrase? I assume you mean our population would not be growing without immigration, which is true (as the son of immigrants).
