Welcome to some fine Weekend Reading folks.
Winter in Canada got you down yet? I know I’m ready to wave the white flag. We continue to get snow in Ottawa amidst -25 degree Celsius weather. Good times if you’re a polar bear. Bad news if you want to see spring like I do. I hope it comes soon.
Earlier this week I answered a few reader questions about how to start investing and I proceeded to answer a few more questions about my monthly dividend income updates.
Speaking of the latter I need to post January’s income update soon. I hope to share that with you next week along with another post I’m thinking about. Also, don’t forget to enter my TurboTax Canada giveaway – I’ve got six online codes to giveaway this year!
Enjoy this Weekend Reading edition, Happy Valentine’s Day and see you here again next week.
