Same old song
Don’t they read their own paper at The Globe and Mail? Hard on the heels of the speculative October 13 story on a possible acquisition of Research In Motion, columnist Barrie McKenna revisits the same topic again this morning. I wish I could tell you he had something new to say although he did try to clothe the old idea in the context of the takeover offer for Potash Corp.
McKenna writes about how RIM is widely held, has a global brand, and makes a case for Ottawa to protect the Waterloo-based company. Yada, yada, yada. After declaring that Ottawa has to start thinking about the next big takeover, McKenna concludes, “Bombardier, Magna, Encana, RIM. There aren’t that many Canadian champions left.”
Nor, apparently, are there that many new topics available.
