Does anyone know if that's a private hospital or a public hospital?

Thought it said a stable condition.

A wise co-worker once told me the following:
Health = 1
Money = 0
Power = 0
Success = 0
Influence = 0
Image = 0
Status = 0
Together they add up to $1 million dollar but without your health you have nothing.

Let's hope it's nothing trivial.

He's in hospital in Montreal all now, and will apparently make a full recovery. For Steve who hopes "it's nothing trivial", may people say the same thing about you when you are old and sick.

Paul Desmarais may have done a lot of damage to Canada but that's a seperate issue. Right now he's sick and I wish him a speedy recovery.

Let's hope dear old Paul doesn't cop out before he pays back the money he took from hard working Canadians. Just may be the U.S. Oil for Food investigation will get an opportunity to find the missing files to locate who got what from BNP Paribas in some pretty shady deals.
