Dear Lou

As a regular listener I do not miss your 06:50 segment on the Oakley Show! Today (January 5th) you suggested that business people must dial themselves into the government’s latest initiatives to stimulate the economy.

My wife’s company may very well qualify for some support from the government and therefore I am willing to help do some research on the matter; which may, in turn, help my family. Would you be able to assist by pointing me to the proper government information packages on this matter?

My wife’s company has two divisions: “Swissmar Imports” & “Swiss Peak”. They import fine European house wares and Swiss Army knives/ Swiss Military watches respectively.

Have a happy capitalism day.

Hi Joe,

My point today on the Oakley Show was that with the Obama crew about to shovel $775B into the U.S. Economy and the Canadian government making noise about a $30B stimulus package you need to get on the bid lists as a recognized supplier to various levels of government.

Here are three:

The Government of Canada;

The Province of Ontario;

The City of Toronto;

Another way to get a piece of the action is to track those who score government contracts and see if you can become a supplier to them. You never know who could use a Swiss Army Knife!

Happy Capitalism!
