Mutual Fund Link of the Month

This month's site of the month isn't really investment related. (Although ScotiaMcLeod founder DI McLeod took up painting when he retired and his art was strongly influenced by the Group of 7 and Lawren Harris.)

American comedian, Steve Martin, was so motivated by the wonderful works of art that Lawren Harris painted nearly 100 years ago, that he volunteered to curate a special touring collection of Harris artwork.

I'm happy to endorse this wonderful exhibit. Not just for art lovers, but for all Canadians. If you get a chance to visit the AGO before September 18, I strongly recommend seeing the exhibit that has already been to Boston and LA.
