All Quiet on the Western Front

For the second time this week, I have found next to nothing in the news that has caught my attention.

Perhaps the world is laying low.

Perhaps we need that.

To quote the wisdom of your supermarket checkout clerk,

(everyone together now)

"Have a nice day!"

One Good Story

There is not much good news in the financial or business sectors these days.

All the more welcome then the small piece in this morning's Province about YVR.

YVR Airport Services Ltd., a subsidiary of the Vancouver Airport Authority owned jointly by the airport authority and the infrastructure division of U.S. banking giant Citibank, is putting in the bid for Gatwick, London's second-largest airport.

YVR operates a number of large and small airports around the world and, in spite of the dreadful taser incident last year, remains a true local success story. I have been told by friends who know such things that YVR's management team is first rate.
