The crystal ball
As promised, here are my predictions for 2013.
1. Sandra Pupatello will be the next leader of the Ontario Liberals and Premier of Ontario. Pupatello and her party will be replaced later in the year by Tim Hudak and the Progressive Conservative Party.
2. Despite all the new players and being named the odds-on favourite by Las Vegas oddsmakers, the Blue Jays will not win the World Series.
3. Hilary Clinton will take herself out of contention for 2016.
4. This is the year that the TSX will rise by double digits.
5. And the Bank of Canada hikes interest rates.
6. Canada’s gross domestic product will grow by a middling 2 percent.
7. At year’s end, Rob Ford will be mayor.
