    C'mon, this summer was whack. Coldest I've ever experienced here.
    I had to put on long underwear one night about a month ago. T shirt/long sleeve/hoodie ----> still too cold.

    Where I work its about 75% Asian people so I have gotten pretty good at identifying the differences between the Asian races. I usually score 80% or higher on those internet tests.

    Today, I saw a white woman (Caucasian) today with a long dark grey CG parka on. It looked like she was modeling a new purchase to her friend because she was showing how to do the hood up (as they were standing in front of an apartment building). It was like Melrose Place, CG edition.

    Location: Eglinton near Young

    Canada Goose bought by U.S.-based Bain Capital

    CBC News

    New York private equity firm Bain Capital has bought a majority stake in Canadian winter gear manufacturer Canada Goose for an undisclosed sum.

    The two companies announced the deal in a news release Tuesday.

    Founded in Toronto in 1957, Canada Goose makes winter apparel for use in extreme low temperatures. Its goods are sold in more than 50 countries and are a frequent target for counterfeiters. The company has grown to employ more than 1,000 people in manufacturing facilities in various parts of Canada.

    Bain, a private equity firm with offices across the U.S., has previously invested in a number of Canadian companies in their early stages, including Shoppers Drug Mart, Bombardier Recreational Products, and BTI Systems.

    Former U.S. presidential nominee Mitt Romney was a co-founder of Bain Capital and spent the majority of his career there before entering politics.

    The two companies say Bain's involvement will help spur the jacket-maker's international expansion plans.

    "Bain Capital has a long and impressive track record of successfully investing in beloved Canadian companies, and we are thrilled to bring them on board. They're the right partner with the right resources and people to help us reach our potential," said Canada Goose president and CEO Dani Reiss, who will remain with the company after the deal closes.

    Say goodbye to those jobs in Canada as they will farm that out to cut costs and improve profits ...
