    Thanks Canuck2004 & Ron for your response. I agree a good accountant is very important. I’m happy with mine. Worried he may retire on me.

    If plans go accordingly I’m a few yrs away from converting over to a RRIF. Better to take this time to plan ahead. I’m slowly seeing the idea that having GIC or bonds maybe beneficial during turbulent times like this. I’ll keep adding to my blue chip long term holdings as the charts look better.

    I do feel we are not out of the woods till sometime next yr.


  2. Ron/BC Says:


    Good thinking Dave. As we both know it’s not whether we can do our taxes or not. Our next door neighbors could do that. It is having an accountant consider everything that is important. And he is the one with credibility, not us. Some people just don’t seem to understand that. Plus he can redo previous years taxes if it’s beneficial to you. I’ve had that done and got some money back from previous years. And any money lost in the market he can use that with “loss carry backs” etc. I also agree we are a long ways from a stock market bottom.
    I go for hip surgery today as I got a Victoria time slot that is faster than the Calgary spot I had for late this month. That alone will save me about $30,000. Not a bad savings………….

  3. Dave/AB Says:

    Hello Ron

    Thanks for the response. Congrats on the new hip. Now get your golf game back in order. I want to get out to the Island and pay a round with you and Bernie. I have been thinking of treating myself to a set of PXGs

  4. Vik Says:

    Ron/BC, all the best for your hip surgery. Wish you a speedy recovery and a quick return the golf course.

  5. Larry/ON Says:

    RON/BC – Best wishes for your surgery.

    Banks – I’m just marvelling at the size of the drop. BMO is down over 25% since its’ March peak. As Tech Talk has pointed out BMO and others have broken important support. How far do they go?

    bon chance Ron….we ll be thinking of you..

  7. DougP Says:


    Excellent news re your hip surgery, Ron. From the time I entered Royal Victoria Hospital to the moment I left after my knee replacement I had nothing but the best attention possible. I trust you will receive the same.

  8. SharonBC Says:

    RonBC – all the best with your surgery. I had two friends that came through it with flying Colors in the Okanagan.
    Banks – i too would be interested in all comments about the Cdn banks at this point.
    Thank you

    Curious to know everyones thoughts on utilities like FTS and EMA? Dividend darlings have been sliding down…. I dont have much of dividend portfolio so thinking this maybe a chance to start positions in FTS for example. Thx.
