    TIFF Lottery Results

    by  • 8/31/2011 • TIFF 2011 • 0 Comments

    A lot of my 2nd choices were toss-ups with the 1st choices in those time slots, so I’m happy to end up with no vouchers and have to try to come up with 3rd choices for some pretty tight spots. These are the shows that I have tickets for at this time. I missed out […]

In this post: Daniella McNab, Martin Owen, Dee Leroy Watson and Sandra Cassells. Eventually another driver came along and clarified the issue very well. It’s a non-public FB group, […]

    Sleeping Beauty works for the TTC

    by  • 1/15/2010 • Toronto • 2 Comments

    Sent the following followup email to the Toronto Transit Commission after hearing nothing for nearly two weeks on a report that I filed early this year. They have you fill out a web form, and list explicit instructions to send an email to followup@ttc.ca if you don’t hear back. I wonder how frequently anyone hears […]

    I’ve included some interesting jobs below, or you can check the main job listing site. I believe that these links will all function outside of RBC’s network, but haven’t been able to verify them yet. If not, http://www.rbc.com/careers should definitely work, if not as directly.
