Advice on decisions in life should be taken from everyone, gleaned, filtered, and a position made.
Except people who profit from your spending. ie. mutual fund managers. You'd be considerably better off investing in an index/ETF of your choice than hoping for success via a mutual fund "manager."

Here's all you need to remember: If you are talking to a "financial professional" and are not explicitly paying them for their expertise, then they will not have your best interests in mind, and will usually be profiting at your expense.

You got that right.
When you are making money they make money. When you are losing money they make money.

I agree. Im
Involved in ETF鈥檚 personally with my own I trade account. I put up my yearly % increase against the one through my employer, who pay in a nice % of my gross income. , and another through my bank. Gold ETFs have my interest right now, out of Switzerland, ZKB鈥檚, as they offer ability to Exchange certificates for hard asset gold. Standard TFSA dividend stocks, Hard asset precious metal purchases with overtime as a young buck killed my mortgage at 40.
I listen to anyone who has advice, and I will look to more ETF exposure, thank you.

LOL. What my situation has at all to do with upcoming elections, I assume only you could answer.

Well, it would never invest in mutual funds. Their management fees erode returns and they are limited in many instances to investments due to just sheer dollar values needed to be placed.

Well considering you were the one that originally brought it up you'd probably be the one to say.

I find the current crop of neo-socialists to be doing a semi-ok job even though they are moving too slow on some reforms I'd like to see. But I also recognize that there's a balancing act to play and unless the public is on board with stronger initiatives in some areas like environment (eg - old growth conservation) or social welfare reforms (addiction, housing) they are kind of caught without being able to make any sort of significant changes due to fear of upsetting the apple cart and getting voted out. It's not until a government gets a strong majority that they have the mandate to really change things; or rob us blind as in the case of the previous and mostly current BC Liberal group. Because hey, ideologically they were afraid of all the damage "those damn socialists" would do to the economy. How'd that work out with ol' team red eh?

Politics are a reactionary game based mostly on the emotions of people with limited awareness of what's happening as they're mainly worried about their own self interests and not the interests of society as a whole - ie dealing with housing, welfare reforms, etc. The irony with that of course is that by dealing with those societal issues it has a net benefit for everyone in the long run WRT things like lower taxes, better services, higher and better employment via better education and so on. We'd rather shame and denigrate people that need help because hey, I don't want my taxes to pay for their free drugs etc than actually deal with the problem. Even if people disagree with how some people end up living their lives, you would think they could come realize that on the economic argument at least it makes complete sense to do the right thing. Alas, they'd rather stew in their ignorance and hate.
