  • S&P cuts outlooks to negative at Canada‚Äôs six biggest banks [View news story]
    I followed the predictions of a number of respected economists for about 10 years. I found their predictions were wrong about 50% of the time. I also read/listened to the advice by analysts employed by several well known brokerage houses for several years, most of them were wrong most of the time. That is why the words "do your own due diligence" is such an important mantra. It is your money, you are the only one you can trust with it so study the game before trusting what some so called expert says. Most of them are no more intelligent than the average person. They would like us to believe they have access to information and expert experienced persons that the average person doesn't. Not so! One benefit of the writers who post here is they don't try to pass themselves off as experts, many just offer their own opinion which is food for thought and discussion.

  • Column: Jeff Immelt is the American Canada needs to lead oil sands clean-up [View news story]
    The subject article is not the first of Dianne Francis' ridiculous articles that are lacking in knowledge and fact. To suggest GE is capable of doing more than the oil companies are and have been doing is absolute stupidity. I experienced first hand some of GE's capability during the construction phase of the Syncrude plant. I was no more impressed with GE or their performance than any other like company. What the oil companies have and are doing is more than some misinformed narrow thinking people would like to believe.

    Toptrotter,
    Poor way of analysing investments! If you use that logic in your investment choices you will lose out on a lot of opportunities.

  • Majority in B.C. want Harper to reject or delay Gateway project [View news story]
    freeny, I think if you check into it you will find that at least 26 Aboriginal groups along the right of way have signed onto the agreement for the Northern Gateway Pipeline. I believe the main Aboriginal groups opposing it are those outside the right of way and some of the coastal bands who are worried about tanker traffic. The native bands through whose land the pipeline will pass will receive the benefit of a 10% equity in the project. I suspect those outside the corridor would like the same financial benefit. Maybe that has some bearing on their negativity?

  • Majority in B.C. want Harper to reject or delay Gateway project [View news story]
    dgwine ----there is some truth in what you say, however does it not seem to you that he should dwell on discussing and solving the problems in his own back yard for which he may be qualified rather than get involved in something that he is not at all qualified in?. And besides that----- I couldn't care less what colour his skin is. To bring that into this discussion is improper and unwarranted.

    It sure is strange that a poll supposedly says the majority are against it when almost everyone I know says they are in favour of it. Polls are easily skewed because the person designing it can select and phrase questions to get the answer he/she wants. Also it is easy for skilled people to write an article to describe any given result the writer wants to imply. When a movement has to bring in and pay celebrity nuts who obviously have no knowledge of a subject to try making their cause you know their movement is suspect. Desmond Tutu is the latest one they have hired. How can anyone put any faith in a man who represents a nation that carries the burden of human suffering and guilt that the South African nations carry? Just look at the diamond mines.

    About the best we can hope for is common sense to prevail.
