Honest Ed Mirvish

July 24, 1914 — July 11, 2007

Over the weekend I couldn't help but note the irony that former Torontonian Conrad Black was convicted of fraud on the same day that his old haunt Toronto was celebrating the life, and memory of another business mogul "Honest" Ed Mirvish. While the former will forever more be tainted no matter what the outcome of his appeals, the latter will forever be remembered as a beloved philanthropist, theatre impresario and friend to all including the poor of this city.

Here is a snippet from the Globe & Mail:

Ed Mirvish was remembered yesterday as a zealous businessman with a wicked sense of humour, a loving family man and an extraordinarily generous person who dedicated his life to giving back to his community.

Mr. Mirvish, better known as Honest Ed, was famous for unconventional promotions for his massive discount store in downtown Toronto, which continues to sell everything from socks and microwaves to religious statuettes and antiques.

Canada's theatre community remembered him as a white knight whose decision to restore the ailing Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto helped put the city on the musical theatre map -- in spite of Mr. Mirvish's claim that he knew nothing about acting.

Mr. Mirvish died Wednesday in a Toronto hospital at 92.

As hundreds of mourners solemnly filed into the Beth Tzedec synagogue yesterday, Toronto police and emergency services personnel lined the walkway, saluting as Mr. Mirvish's immediate family arrived.

Several dignitaries, including Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty, former premier Bob Rae, Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Julian Fantino and NDP Leader Jack Layton, were also acknowledged by the honour guard.

Something to think about.....

Rest in peace Honest Ed, you are a person that did great things for this city, and someone we should all aspire to be more like.

One Laptop Per Child And Intel

Intel has joined forces with the non-profit One Laptop Per Child foundation, which aids children in the developing world. Here is a snippet from the BBC in regards:

The agreement marks a huge turnaround for both the not-for-profit One Laptop per Child (OLPC) foundation and Intel.

In May this year, Nicholas Negroponte, the founder of OLPC, said the silicon giant "should be ashamed of itself" for efforts to undermine his initiative.

He accused Intel of selling its own cut-price laptop - the Classmate PC - below cost to drive him out of markets in the developing world.

"What happened in the past has happened," Will Swope of Intel told the BBC News website. "But going forward, this allows the two organisations to go do a better job and have a better impact for what we are both very eager to do, which is help kids around the world."

It is good to hear that these companies have decided to work together for the betterment of children around the globe. When I first heard of the $100.00 laptop I thought it was a fantastic idea, and it can only just keep getting better with chip-making giant Intel now on board. I believe that these laptops will be a key in providing education to some of the world's most poorest children. Excellent news!
