This is not the solution either. Legitimate tax planning (for families, small biz, etc) should not be vilified.


Andrew Scheer told the Commons that Justin Trudeau’s personal wealth – inherited from his father’s family trust and now held in three separate numbered corporations – is not affected by the Liberals’ small-business tax proposals

"Mr. Trudeau appeared to be caught off guard when reporters pressed him on why he was prepared to ban certain tax-avoidance measures that benefit small business when his own family has used other legal structures to also lower total taxes paid on the wealth left by his late father, Pierre Trudeau."


Trudeau’s wealth includes undisclosed distributions from his father’s estate in 2016 and interests in several numbered companies

Not a bad idea though I suspect (unfortunately) that it won't get through

Jamie Golombek: A new report is calling for preferential tax treatment for the donation of appreciated private company shares and appreciated real estate to charity

I bet your teens approve: Added academic benefit of later start times = $17,500 to student’s earnings over lifetime http://nyti.ms/2xFTAPO

We’ve known for a while that adolescent sleep cycles and high school hours are misaligned. But this is not just a health problem.

"There's been a 9 percent drop in flood insurance coverage in the Houston area over the last five years and a drop of 15 percent in Florida, Associated Press investigations recently found. In some of the most severely affected counties, the drop was over 20 percent. Why would Floridians (who regularly face hurricanes) or Texans (who've experienced five major floods since 2010) make this unwise choice? The current head of the federal flood insurance program, Roy Wright, thinks he knows the answer: a decision by Congress in 2012 to raise premiums for the troubled National Flood Insurance program that covers what private insurers won't. Flood insurance now doesn't fit into stretched family budgets."


Insurance is costly. If it's optional, guess who ends up paying for recoveries from medical and meteorological disasters.

Potential for amazing advances in connectivity? Or is it a tad Orwellian??


Facebook Inc.’s Sheryl Sandberg vowed to deepen cooperation with the likes of Daimler AG and Volkswagen AG and said the American technology giant is seeking closer ties to the automobile industry.

Good assessment & one that many could apply to their own businesses. Would've been nice to include Canada though!


Let’s skip the nationwide bidding war and cut right to the winner.

Taxes eat up more of the avg family’s income than ALL the basic necessities of life combined incl rent/mortgage pmts

In 2016, the average Canadian family (including single Canadians) earned about $83,105 in income and paid $35,283 in total taxes

One of the many things I love about Raymond James is their support of female advisors. Honored to be part of a company that truly cares!

Videos and a publication aim to support existing women reps and add to their numbers, which are roughly 16% of the full US advisor force.
On the 16th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, we pause to remember the events of that tragic day, as well as honor the victims and the heroism of first responders.

Booking my next vacation to Mariana Trench. Ok maybe not right now, but soon!

Stockton Rush is building a private minisub with modified PlayStation controllers and cockpit tablets straight out of Star Trek.

"No wine crime is more extensive than counterfeiting. Mostly it’s done with fine and rare wines; now, less remarkable wines are being targeted. In 2016, $400,000 worth of spurious Moët & Chandon Champagne were seized in Italy. A year earlier, fake bottles of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s inexpensive Miraval rosé were uncovered in China."


As wine crime rises, an expert samples a questionable bottle of 1962 La Tâche.

Is this really all that surprising?


The disappearing-message service kept it tough for users to measure their audience. Facebook’s service swooped in.

Avg price for all housing types declined 1.9% last month from July to C$732,292 - down 20% from the March peak:

Housing prices in Toronto continued their summer slump in August as government regulations and fears about a market softening curbed demand in Canada’s biggest city.

In addition to sometimes costing your sanity (terrible 2s?) the annual cost of raising a child is pegged at $13,366

Should you consider a pet trust?

The name may evoke stories of heirs and heiresses setting aside enormous sums for their pets, but these trusts aren’t just for millionaires.
