Frank joins the club

Must be a bit of an anti-climax for Frank Hasenfratz to be inducted into the Order of Canada.

After all, his arch-rival Frank Stronach made it there 15 years ago.

But good on Frank!

I've written about Frank before, but his story bears repeating. He made his way as an old-school capitalist, the kind even a dyed-in-the-wool pinko like me can respect. He built a business by making stuff that other people wanted to buy. His shop out on the Silvercreek extension just north of Guelph was the employer of last resort in those parts back when I was coming up.

From penniless immigrant to billionaire member of the Order of Canada... oh, what a great country we live in!

And that's in spite of a political class that works ceaselessly to screw it up!

Congratulations Mr. Hasenfratz!
