Ahmnodt Heare for President

Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

Somebody’s Listening

I have occasionally asked people to bring signs of support at sporting events.  I had asked for signs at the Final Four, the World Series, the Super Bowl, and most recently at the Olympics.  For various reasons, this had never materialized.  I am pleased to report that there was a sign sighting tonight at the Ottawa Senators – Carolina Hurricanes game in Raleigh, North Carolina.  This means that over 5000 people saw the sign at the RBC Center in Raleigh.  Hundreds more watched the game in North Carolina.  Millions watched the game in Ottawa.

Tonight I can overlook the fact that one of the teams was Canadian.  I can even overlook that the RBC in RBC Center stands for Royal Bank of Canada (even though the arena is in North Carolina.)  The picture below makes it easy to overlook things.

5000 people saw the sign live as well as hundreds on TV in North Carolina.

This is a huge step in the right direction after the week I had in New Hampshire and Quebec.

  1. Is the Royal Bank of Canada really in North Carolina? You know I can check now

  2. There’s a branch in Winston-Salem and one in Kernersville down the street from Second Wind Publishing.

  3. We have a ton of branches of Toronto Dominion here in Washington DC. It is just so offensive for a foreign bank to be located in our Nation’s Capitol. Must be some NAFTA things but I don’t like it.

  4. I will be in the DC area next weekend for my daughter’s birthday. I am taking her to the Caps-Lightning game on Friday. She might enjoy picketing these Toronto Domino’s you are talking about. Let them deliver pizza in Ontario and leave the U.S. pizza delivery to Americans!

  5. RBC Bank President Gordon Nixon – Salary $11.73 Million


    I’m a commercial fisherman fighting the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC Bank) over a $100,000 loan mistake. I lost my home, fishing vessel and equipment. Help me fight this corporate bully by closing your RBC Bank account.

    There was no monthly interest payment date or amount of interest payable per month on my loan agreement. Date of first installment payment (Principal + interest) is approximately 1 year from the signing of my contract.
    Demand loan agreements signed by other fishermen around the same time disclosed monthly interest payment dates and interest amounts payable per month.The lending policy for fishermen did change at RBC from one payment (principal + interest) per year for fishing loans to principal paid yearly with interest paid monthly. This lending practice was in place when I approached RBC.
    Only problem is the loans officer was a replacement who wasn’t familiar with these type of loans. She never informed me verbally or in writing about this new criteria.
