Before I get to the Weekend Reading list, I want to express my condolences to the loved ones of the victims of the horrific OC Transpo accident with a Via train in Ottawa this week. So tragic, so many lives changed in my city in an instant. I suppose it’s a reminder for all of us, how precious and precarious life really is. Take care this weekend and in your downtime enjoy these quality articles from the personal finance and investing blogosphere.

That story is so sad. There has been a lot of tragedy like this incident in our country lately. I wish the best for the families that had loved ones involved in the accident.
Kind words. Thanks for the comment.
That was a tragedy and another reason why I always say to live life because you never know when it will be taken away. We are never entitled to anything, not even waking up in the morning. Have a great day.
I heard about that tragic accident on the news. There are thousands of train track crossings across the country. I hope something good will result from their investigation so this kind of thing doesn’t happen again. Great progress with your dividends btw. I think I’m on track to hit only $5K this year myself. Thanks a lot for the share 🙂
