…of ‘Trump’, ‘Dutch’ & hypertension…


…”Brace yourselves: Trump is going to win”…”Hudson’s Bay to open up to 20 new stores in the Netherlands”…”May 17th: World Hypertension Day”…

When a former Canadian ambassador (Derek Burney 1989-1993) makes such statements, Canadians notice!!!

With concerns about NAFTA & softwood lumber & border controls, he goes on to say:

“Conventional thinking about this election has been consistently wrong and unexpected developments may still lie ahead, but Canadians and their government may also have to start thinking the unthinkable – a Trump presidency that shatters the most foundational element of our foreign policy, the way we have managed relations with the United States over the past 60-odd years.”

Indeed an odd headline and the thought of Canada’s Hudson’s Bay in Holland is most definitely an unusual one!

Apparently it’s all part of a “European expansion” since Hudson’s Bay Company acquired Galeria Kaufhof, the largest department store chain in Belgium & Germany.

“Expansion into the Netherlands is a natural extension of our existing presence in Belgium as well as our planned entry into Luxembourg and will complete our presence in all of the Benelux countries,” according to the HBC chairman.

Will your next shopping spree quip–let’s go Dutch!?

Bet you didn’t know it either! Be it ‘trumped’ or ‘buy the way at the Bay’, it’s World Hypertension Day!!

Apparently this year’s theme is “Know Your Numbers”and various events will take place around the world to increase awareness!

Cheers to a Terrific Tuesday that quips–non-hyper, no tension!!!
