This week, we read about little things and powerful things.
Starting with little things, we watched NDP rookie MP Sana Hassainia pressed into leaving her seat just ahead of a House vote, because she was accompanied by her three-month-old boy, Skander-Jack. Sana brought the baby into the chamber because she could not find her husband, before the vote on the long-gun registry. I guess this takes the “take your child to work” practice to a whole new level!
Regarding powerful things, I’d like to thank Bryan Borzykowski again for profiling me in The Toronto Star. The article discussed the increasing power of the Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA). If you didn’t get a chance to read it, check it out and let me know what you think.
I also made time to read my favourite blogs this week to come up with the list below for you. I hope this provides some great weekend reading material.
Have a safe, happy and healthy weekend and thanks for reading!

Million Dollar Journey wondered if you will be buying the Facebook IPO. My answer is, not a chance. (By the way – Facebook has been valued around $100 billion. Mr. Zuckerberg will be retaining 28% or so of the company, that means, he’ll be worth about $28 Billion. Not bad…I guess.)
