Time to Reboot

Posted: 31/01/2018 10:15:29 AM

I can’t tell you how many times in my life I have been in awe of modern technology. High speed internet, smart phones; we live in amazing times. The advancements have been incredible to watch. But you know what? I think we should stop now. I think we were heading in the right direction, but somewhere we made a U-turn. It used to be that you turn on your computer, you use your computer, it was great and that was that. Now I turn on my computer, the first thing it does is it tells me it's going to turn itself off, reboot and then download a system upgrade which will take 20 minutes to an hour, depending on its mood.


Justin, Andrew, and Jagmeet

Justin Trudeau is a very lucky politician—nothing sticks to this guy. He goes out there on the road doing all these town halls all over Canada; he gets up there in front of big crowds; he totally goes off script; he’s up there just freewheeling it; and yes, sometimes it works. But man oh man, when he is in improv mode some of the stuff that comes out of his mouth is baffling. At this point I wouldn’t be surprised if he opened his mouth and a Tide detergent pod popped out.


Give Them a Break

Six months ago, if you asked random Canadians on the street what they thought about Tim Hortons, the vast majority of them would probably say positive things. In this country we’ve always had time for Tim Hortons. So it is inconceivable that suddenly Tim Hortons is front and centre in the debate on how companies treat minimum wage employees. I would say that the guy who built Tim Hortons is spinning in his grave except he’s still very much alive. That would be Ron Joyce Sr., the genius that built the Tim Hortons empire—an iconic brand that most Canadians felt reflected Canadian values. That’s Ron Sr. Do not confuse him with Ron Jr.
