Next week is "BDC Facts & Figures" Week
With more than a year of blogging under our belts, I’m surprised we haven’t used the “series” tool more frequently.
In the case of the pending BCE Takeover, that 24 part series (and counting) didn’t start out as a series per se. We just kept writing about the topic and it morphed into one (see post “Did the feds just hand Teachers a MAC on BCE?“, November 30-07).
Frankly it is high time we planned a series, and there just isn’t a more appropriate topic than the federal government’s Business Development Bank of Canada!
We will post a few fun facts and/or figures each day, in between the usual cut and thrust of News, Views and Purviews. I’d encourage BDC customers to use the comment section to tell us about their successes or tales of woe. And we’d naturally welcome stories from current and former employees. No one knows better what goes into the sausage than the folks who work at the sausage factory.
Private sector lenders that have seen the BDC take business away from them using the power of the federal government’s own credit rating are encouraged to post comments, as well; client specifics will be kept confidential, of course.
There are just so many interesting things to write about when it comes to the BDC’s lending arm. A week-long series is the only way to do it justice.
