Appearance on The Lang and O’Leary Exchange

Wednesday night I was privileged to appear on The Lang and O’Leary Exchange with Amanda Lang and Kevin O’Leary. It was a retirement planning focused segment and we had a viewer share her story. What is really interesting is that the viewer is involved with fostering financial literacy for kids! Her name is Laura Thomas, and I suggest checking her out.

You can click here to watch the clip on CBC’s video player. The segment runs about 9 minutes.

p.s. I didn’t actually get to respond to the last question, but note that Amanda indicated that we are all entitled to OAS. That is not true. There is a time requirement of Canadian residency that can greatly affect your entitlement to OAS. You may not even be entitled to any OAS.

    Gotta love TV conversations. They really need to set aside some more time for conversastions like this one. Things were just getting ramped up and then it was cut off without warning. You do interview well though Preet. It seems like they were prodding you the whole time for broad reaching sound bite advice, but you stood your ground.

      Thanks Traciatim. That, and there is never enough time on TV. It flies by from my perspective.

    Aside from getting cut-off a few times, I thought you did well Preet. I hope they have you back as part of standing “Financial Panel”. CBC should be running something like that at least every month. Increase financial literacy. Thoughts?

    BTW – what the hell with “Jim” talking about CPP system reform? How on earth is Joe or Jill Canadian supposed to act on that as an individual? Geez.

    Have a good weekend,

      No one would watch it . . . at least not the people who need to watch it.

        Traciatim – “at least not the people who need to watch it” – ouch but fair enough.

      This was my second appearance in two months in a similar format. I suspect one on RRSPs for Feb is on the way…
