Canada Post Leads by Example

Man­age­ment gurus around the world are look­ing closely at Canada Post’s exper­i­ment with a rad­i­cal new busi­ness phi­los­o­phy as it faces chal­lenges in a chang­ing mar­ket. Devel­oped by some of the top MBAs in the world, Pure Man­age­ment is based on the assump­tion that the most suc­cess­ful com­pa­nies don’t actu­ally “do” or “make” things, they “man­age stuff.” “We’ve seen man­age­ment philoso­phies come and go over the years,” said Sid­ney McQueen, Canada Post’s Senior Vice Pres­i­dent in charge of […]

Only 11% of Canadians Paying Attention

n a new study, a team of researchers has deter­mined that only 11% of the Cana­dian pop­u­la­tion are pay­ing atten­tion to any­thing. “We orig­i­nally set out to learn how the Ontario elec­torate would be mak­ing its deci­sions,” said Dr. Laura Vin­kle, “but we dis­cov­ered a pro­found lack of aware­ness of all things.”

Sur­veys and in-depth inter­views with select sub­jects found that the over­whelm­ing major­ity of Cana­di­ans were, most of the time, tuned out.

Canada Celebrates Stupidity

In a move crit­i­cized as pan­der­ing to vot­ers and “dol­lar store retail pol­i­tics” the speech from the throne will focus on dumb Cana­di­ans. “This is merely rec­og­niz­ing a social real­ity, ” said Unof­fi­cial Spoke­sthingy and Sup­ple­men­tal Elec­toral Spend­ing Ober­grup­pen­führer Dun­ning Kruger, “and I dare the oppo­si­tion to get up on their hind legs and try to deny stu­pid cit­i­zens the rights enjoyed by pointy headed book-learned elites.” Among the leg­isla­tive ini­tia­tives aimed squarely at the wit­less Canucks are consumer […]

Liberals Go Dumb

Revers­ing the dis­as­trous course taken by draft­ing the aca­d­e­mic Michael Ignati­eff to lead their Party, a bunch of old Lib­eral hacks have decided to roll the dice and “go dumb” with the son of a for­mer Prime Min­is­ter and nice hair­cut Justin Trudeau.  “The Con­ser­v­a­tives have had some suc­cess with real morons,”  said Lib­eral Party offi­cial Hubert Kick­back. “Look at Peter Mackay. And tell me if Peter Kent’s I.Q. breaks the dou­ble dig­its.” Polit­i­cal ana­lysts put the […]

CBC at 75

FIRST PUBLISHED DECEMBER 9, 2010 At 75 years of age,the CBC has become for­get­ful and some­times con­fused, forc­ing the Harper gov­ern­ment to con­front tough deci­sions about its care. “It still thinks it can make pro­grams and broad­cast but it’s old and very tired,” said Toronto media ana­lyst Linda Scott. “Last week it thought it was fart­ing but pooped in its pants a lit­tle.” The episode embar­rassed both the dod­der­ing old CBC and the Gov­ern­ment. “The Gov­ern­ment is in […]

Democ­racy, the big “D.” It is all about the rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the peo­ple, through their fran­chise, in the Gov­ern­ment of the land.  The legit­i­mate vic­tor in the cur­rent con­test should be the one that best reflects Canada.  So before we endorse one can­di­date or another, let us take account of just who and what Canada is at this moment. Canada is pros­per­ous because it is thinly pop­u­lated and chock-o-block with nat­ural resources. Our econ­omy isn’t […]
