#Canada150, B of C Rates, and #MoneyTalk

Canada turns 150 tomorrow, and the City of Ottawa has put out its best for folks to celebrate. Should be interesting, I vaguely remember 1967, and I hope I am around for 2067 guess I should really push out the boat on this one.

My family, immigrated to Canada, and I am so thankful that they did. While I respect and love the land of my parents (Wales & Britain), Canada is my home, and it will always be with me.

The Bank of Canada Governor is saying he thinks low-interest rates have “done their job”, however:

“… certainly we need to be at least considering that whole situation now that the capacity excess capacity is being used up steadily.”

Sounds a lot like someone contemplating a rate increase soon. Might be time to get out of debt ? Debt is a four letter word , after all.

The White Walkers Want Your Money

Yes, the first 1/2 of the final season of Game of Thrones starts soon too. Rising rates will bring financial winter for some folks.

Writings This Week

I have been working on RESPs and High Fee Mutual Funds for a while. It has languished, but I was able to figure out what I was trying to say (I think). Just because it is easier to use a Bank Mutual Fund account for your kids’ RESP accounts, doesn’t mean you should use it. If you ever hear someone from a Mutual Fund firm brag about how high their fees are, please drop me a line.

Expo 67 Greatest Show Ever

Do you remember Expo 67? Bobby Gimby ? If you lived in Montreal this song makes you cringe, because it played on a permanent loop for a year. Was it the Greatest Show Ever ?

Doesn’t Look a Day over 125

Canada 150 is this weekend, and Ottawa is mayhem in terms of parking, and getting anywhere. Good luck to all tourists who might want to get here.

Do You Remember 1967

More specifically do you remember Expo 67 ? Pathe brings us their film short about the Greatest World Exposition. It always sounds better with an English Accent.
