Welcome to this weeks Change Room Chatter. We’ll call it the donating a billion dollars edition. In case you haven’t heard, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has plans to donate most of his money to charity over his lifetime. At today’s market value that’s like $45 Billion. It’s actually been pointed out, there might just be something else behind his generosity. As this Forbes article discovers, his donation is not only generous BUT incredibly tax efficient. Have a look and you be the judge.

With meat being somewhat demonized in the media lately, I was kind of glad to see this new ad campaign from Maple Leaf Foods promoting protein in our diets. Yes they sell the stuff.

As a population we love whole wheat bagels and low-fat yogurt…..yet we’re getting fatter and fatter every year. You be the judge.
