  1. Hey mate! That’s quite the list! Looking forward to your dividend update for the year. We’ll be meeting with our advisor soon but I’m sure it’s not as exciting as your dividend update. I hope to start investing something on my own this year. Not sure where, when or how but I’m sure I’ll get help from the pros along the way. Cheers Mr.CBB

  2. Thanks! As for your portfolio, I’m sure you already know this, keep your fees as low as possible for as long as possible. That’s one of the keys to financial freedom. Oh yeah, and no mortgage 😉

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Mark!!!!
    Thanks for the inclusion in a solid roundup.
    Hope 2013 is treating you well, and that you’re not too exhausted from all the snow shoveling up in the big “O”. Have a great weekend!

  4. Interesting line-up for the start of January and new year. It’s amazing how these lists get you discovering amazing blogs. I started off with Modest Money and it seems there an entire Canadian finance blogosphere I’ve been blind to for way too long. I don’t yet know how to define it but there is a distinct spirit up here from what I know from US American financial blogs.
