Weekly News Blast – 19th February 2011

Weekly News Blast – 19th February 2011

Hi Gang,

We’re back. This time on the right day.
Loads going on this week so, without further ado…

We’ve had a word of thanks from a site user, Quebec City will be getting a brand new NHL team (the Nordiques are inbound) $400 million dollar arena to use for major sporting events, music and stuff (when the hockey’s not on if we get a look in) and Wills and Kate will be visiting Canada on their first official visit following their impending nuptials (they did remark to Granny that Canada was a bit cold and asked if they would be visiting La Capitale Nationale. ‘Wear the fox hat?’ came the reply apparently).

And finally, we love people and organisations that don’t try and stand in your way and actually make life easier for you. TD Canada Trust are like that and we applaud them for it. They’ve only gone and opened their branches on a Sunday. Good on ’em (more details below).

Moving swiftly on…
