Over the last eighteen months since I have been out of office I have spent much of my waking hours trying to evaluate our economy and what that future looks like. [...]
Happy Easter everybody and I would like to share an Easter story from the seventies.
I was a teenager in the wild sixties and before you ask, yes I did inhale; but I digress. The transition from the fifties to the sixties was turbulent : as a child in the fifties we grew up in a time of trust and a time of plenty and even the poor folks like us lived a good and simple life. [...]
A little catch up to do after a few months off. I would first like to thank the Ottawa Citizen for apologizing for the article written by Kate Heartfield. Unfortunately the damage done by a lie is hard to undo with an apology but I have licked my wounds and now want to move on. [...]
Time to Have a Vision!

My son Matt asked me what was my worst fear if we had an economic CRISIS that was bigger then the Great depression of 29. This imagination story is my answer to that very tough question and in the end my worry had little to do with money. This is a story of 2012 to 2017 as told by a communications technologist looking back on the five year anniversary of the reelection of President Obama in 2012.
