Happy Victoria Day

in Holiday

Yes indeed, it is a holiday Monday in Canada, and following the laws of the land I do not plan to work either. I am writing this the previous week.

Victoria Day is one of the “big” holidays in Canada and most folks get the day off, but in Ontario merchants are fighting to be allowed to be open this day as well, I hope they don’t succeed, for the families of those who work in their stores.

Tuesday we will discuss the inflation numbers that came out on Friday. Interesting to see that Gas prices are actually dropping again (in Ottawa it is below 95 cents a litre), which may cause Inflation to do a few more loops again (but will it forestall the inevitable interest rate increases?).

Globe And Mail Survey

The Globe and Mail in it’s infinite wisdom has included this humble thome in it’s survey Vote: Best of the Money Blogs. Now I am in tough with some excellent writers including Gail Vaz-Oxlade, Michael James and the Squawkfox, however, I ask as your humble writer that you go and vote for a site that is the most deserving (and when I say most deserving of course I mean me).

    What I want to know is why the gas prices here (Victoria BC) have gone up 7% while the price of gasoline in Canadian dollars (UGA / FXC) has gone down 15%!!
