      Hi, Julien. I waited with bated breath at that moment of the interview and you can imagine my reaction at that missed opportunity from TD. We need to get a new marketing strategy rolled out for 2022. Cheers.

    Fascinating interview . . . Hope these words find the Dalrymple eye and have him comment on something of possible interest.
    ‘The Great Bagel Survey’/’What the Bagel Man Saw’ (a study of ‘white-collar’ crime) appeared in a chapter of ‘Freakonomics’ (2009) drawn from the detailed study of a highly qualified professional statistician. The man seems to have proven, with very little doubt that :
    9 in 13 people are always honest. We’ve all met them.
    3 in 13 people are always honest, but only ‘if they can afford to be’. Some of us have been there.
    1 in 13 people cannot be trusted under any circumstances what-so-ever. These are the folks who will ruin you life if they find it convenient . . . but only if they can . . . and if you allow them.
    The moral to be taken is be very very careful about who you invite to what might be your ‘last supper’.
