Allez je vous sens chaud, on va se faire le replay de Patrick Drahi histoire de voir s'il a dit autre chose que "Un problème de pluralité ? Mais non regardez on est plein de milliardaires à se partager les médias"
"Je peux aussi enlever le masque, je suis triple vacciné, je dois avoir le record du monde des anti-corps [...] j'avais testé mes anti-corps avant le 3e vaccin je trouvais ça inutile mais bon" Patrick est déjà à fond les ballons
Quand il a racheté SFR c'était le déclin de CA et d'abonnés, volonté de maintenir en France et de réinvestir, notamment pour en finir avec la mauvaise image (vu les augmentations cachées et la TVA ça a pas du jouer que dans le bon sens à ce niveau 🤓)

Ramadan Day 9

A’ishah (R.A) narrated that the Prophet (SAW) said:
“One who is proficient in reciting the Qur’an is associated with the noble, pious (angel) scribes. As for he who stammers when reciting the Qur’an and find it difficult for him, he will be granted a double reward”

`Uthman ibn `Affan (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet (SAW) said: “The best among you [Muslims] are those who learn the Qur’an and teach it.” (Al-Bukhari)

An-Nawwas ibn Sm`an (R.A) narrated that the Prophet (SAW) said:
“On the Day

This is your daily pension announcement! AIMCO is looking for a new Board Member! I am hoping they get someone who can ask the question: "Which one of our current investment strategies is NOT covered by our risk system?"
#ABLeg #funnynotfunny…
But seriously, the person has probably already been chosen. Probably an associate of Mark Wiseman and Bob Kelly as they seek to consolidate some power on the Board. #ABLeg
Please note that AIMCO can (and I believe does) hold Board meetings in Toronto. Since most of the directors live there.

Remember that next time Athana and Travis talks about bringing assets "home" to Alberta. #ABLeg
