Kevin O’Leary is Wrong! It is NOT All About The Money!

Mon, 2016-10-24 13:41

I once went to see Kevin O’Leary at a Fireside Chat at Ryerson University’s Ted Rogers School of Management, just to experience him in a more intimate situation. He was as abrasive and blunt as he was on Dragon’s Den. He still said “it was all about the money” and it made me sad. Read what he says about business being war. I hate war and violence and we do not need more of that in our world.

Mon, 2016-10-24 13:35

Another bad day for Bombardier, but will that accelerate possible federal funding?

Saying it needs to be more profitable and more competitive, Bombardier is cutting more than 7,000 jobs over the next few years with 1,500 in Quebec and 500 elsewhere in the country. 

McGill business professor Karl Moore spoke with CTV saying financial public investments are still needed for a company as big as Bombardier even though it's making cuts.

Bombardier layoffs a symptom of Canada’s failure to stay competitive, says expert

Mon, 2016-10-24 13:29

Bombardier is eliminating 7,500 workers around the world, with roughly 2,000 positions being cut in Canada. But they’re hiring 3,700 in countries with lower costs. One expert says Canada’s struggle to be competitive in the international marketplace is one reason why.

Karl Moore, professor at the Desautels faculty of management at McGill University, said that Bombardier will have to “suffer some pain” here in Canada as it restructures in an attempt to return to profitability and competitiveness.
