BELL: The future isn’t friendly

Actually, that should be 2,502 fewer jobs: 2500 humans and 2 beavers.

The beaver is a symbol of Canada, so of course we can't have that now that BCE is 2/3 owned by US private equity. Come to think of it, Bell Canada Enterprises is now a total misnomer as well.

They also have at least 1 less subscriber, since I have cancelled all my Bell "Canada" services.

I wonder how many of those 2500 were "dancing in the hallways" when Stubby pulled the plug on "Bell Canada Income Trust"?
