  • The guy I didn't care much for, but hey, the products he pitched always looked totally sweet.

    Be warned, though: those curved wipers don't work worth a darn.

  • Commercials? That's so 90s! I have one word for y'all...PVR (no vowels).

  • No, CG.

    You are completely wrong.

    This is the best news in a long time.

    I, for one, welcome my Franco-Swiss goaltending duo overlords.

  • Agree completely! Few ads, except for the "Unofficial Wendy's Spokesman" of a few years ago, grated on me enough to hit the remote and wish for a CSI rerun on a U.S. channel or one owned by Alliance Atlantis!

  • CG,

    This IS great news. Hopefully Brison will resign and apply to be one of the new Canadian Tire spokespeople. He seems to be a great spokesperson for government cabinet decisions, and he even checks up on customers after he's sold them merchandise. Well, here why don't I just give you an example.

    Brison: U Happy?
    Customer: I can not express my joy

    You see? Customer satisfaction is number one with Nova Scotia's playboy.

  • Been a rough few months for you eh, CG? You know it's bad when this is the highlight of your days.
    Not too sure of the extent to which I agree with cfsr about the Theodore trade. I'll give it some time and see how Huet and Aebischer do.

    Does Anyone running for leadership have as many qualifications as this woman?

A national of Canada, she assumed her duties on 2 March 1998, after having been appointed by Secretary-General Kofi Annan.The post of Deputy Secretary-General was established by the General Assembly at the end of 1997 as part of the reform of the United Nations, to help manage Secretariat operations and to ensure coherence of activities and programmes. The purpose was also to elevate the Organization’s profile and leadership in the economic and social spheres. The Deputy Secretary-General assists the Secretary-General in the full range of his responsibilities and also may represent the United Nations at conferences and official functions. She chairs the Steering Committee on Reform and Management Policy and the Advisory Board of the United Nations Fund for International Partnerships (UNFIP), which handles relations with the foundation set up by Ted Turner in support of the United Nations.

    Before joining the United Nations, Ms. Fréchette was the Deputy Minister of National Defence of Canada from 1995 to 1998. Prior to that, she was Associate Deputy Minister in her country’s Department of Finance. She served as Permanent Representative of Canada to the United Nations from 1992 to 1995.

    I don't think he speaks French. Otherwise there would be no need for the French Canadian Tire Guy who I see from time to time on SRC who wears the same clothes, but not the same beard, as our friend.

  • "they were starting to wear on consumers by late last year."

    Off by about 6 years, I'd say. I wonder who gets the tools in this divorce.

    Note to bloggers who have been spammed by these Frechette posts on irrelevant threads, please head over to the blogger's site and tell her to knock it off. It's flipping annoying and she needs to know it.
