R.I.P. Ted Rogers - 1933-2008

I just heard that media mogul Ted Rogers passed away. I think a lot of people knew this was probably going to happen sooner rather than later due to his hospitalization for a recurring heart problem.

Love him or hate him most Canadians know who he was because of Rogers Cable. I think most people hate the cost of Rogers services more than they hate the man, lol.

It will be interesting to see what happens with the company in the near future as they look to find a full-time replacement as CEO, as well as how the stock will fare with the news of his passing in the turbulent economic time we are in.

Ted Rogers...dead at 75.


Well being a Liberal supporter myself I am all for this, however I am not a fan of Dion. Although he swears that come May 2009 when the Liberals choose a new party leader he would step down as Prime Minister.

With regards to the Bloc the only power they hold is in voting on motions in parliament. They won't hold any cabinet seats, the coalition merely needs them to have a majority in parliament.

So I don't see an undermining of Democracy as Canadian's didn't vote for which party should run the country, they just voted for a member of parliament. People have to understand they did not vote for Harper to be Prime Minister they voted for their MP.

If Harper does lose his job as Prime Minister then he can only blame his party. They offered no stimulus plan in the budget in an economy that is in a recession.

Oshawa is probably going to turn into a ghost town because of the auto sector crisis. As Mayor John Gray said..."If Oshawa gets a cold, the rest of the province gets pneumonia."

Either way I am interested to see what Gov. Gen. Jean decides.
