LinkStuff – Globe & Mail Online Chat Edition

by Mike Holman

On Wednesday I participated in a Globe & Mail online Q&A chat on RESPs – you can read all the questions and answers here.

The Q&A was a lot of fun. I wasn’t sure what to expect in the way of questions, but there were a lot of good topics covered. Thanks to Roma Luciw and Katherine Scarrow for setting it up.

The Globe & Mail also published an excerpt from my e-book “How to withdraw from your RESP” this week.

For those keeping track at home, I was in the Globe twice last week and twice this week. I’m wondering when they will have had enough of me? 🙂

On with the links
