On No Discounts for Millennials

@Wilgrims We have senior discounts in Canada, where in fact people over age 65 are half as likely to be living in poverty than any other age group.

On WWYD: The Gift from Management

@patiolanterns Not related to the query, but now that I've read this, I can't believe the company purchases tickets and then deducts them from salaries. The tickets are a cost of doing business that the company has taken on.

On Why Are Shopping Carts Huge Do You Know Do You Know Really

I love reading Worthwhile Canadian Initiative. Both Frances and Nick Rowe taught me in university. Unfortunately non of it stuck because I am NO GOOD at economics, but I attempt to make up for this by learning about the economics of shopping carts instead.

On The Canadian Real Estate Market is Insane (But Tightly Regulated)

Its a brand new brownstone walk up with not a lot required for maintenance. Larger units than me pay more. We all paid more money when it was incorporated so it has assets to match its liabilities.

On The Canadian Real Estate Market is Insane (But Tightly Regulated)

@Lily Rowan This is why doing market research is so important. So many people are pressured to buy a home, whether by family, friends or others, when it is not always the smart financial decision.

On The Canadian Real Estate Market is Insane (But Tightly Regulated)

Condo fees are ridiculous, especially in Toronto. I've heard $400-600 a month. I live in a city outside Toronto, own a condo (at a third of what it would cost in T.O.) and pay only $120 in condo fees a month. To me, the benefits I receive and the maintenance of the building are worth that.

On Avoid TMI When Calling in Sick

@charmcity That is always so weird to me, why people need to know. I do the same email as you about twice a year because I have a disgestive issue that flares up unexpectedly but no one needs to know that. And when I get back to work, my boss always ask if I feeling better, and I nod, then he nods, then life goes on.

On You Mean Some People Don't Drive, What?

@kristindru I know! That's what caught my eye too. I just paid six months of insurance last week and it was almost $860. I pay over $1700 a year to insure a 2011 Ford Focus.

On Time Warner Cable's Really Obnoxious 'Business Decision'

@Megano! I'm not sure who's worse, Rogers or Bell, but I've declared Bell my archnemesis for life and them seem to have taken this challenge to make my life difficult very seriously, and they are doing quite well at it. What is the name of your indie provider? Are they available in Ontario?
