The new king of hip-hop wealth [50 Cent] banked $100 million after taxes on one deal alone when his stake in VitaminWater's parent, Glacéau, was bought by Coca-Cola as part of a $4.1 billion deal. 50's portfolio also includes the popular G-Unit clothing line and record label, plus films, videogames and a slew of platinum albums, including last year's Curtis. Also in the works: a mining partnership with South African billionaire Partrice Motsepe.
One thing the the current BC Liberal government seems to be good at is asking people for their input. They're currently running a 2007 Budget Consultation. It gives everyone an opportunity to share their views on where the budget should spend more and less. It includes an on-line response form, so if you live in BC go and tell them what you think.
My input (in a nutshell): Spend more money on public transport and to support increased bicycle use. Try and fix healthcare spending before all the baby boomers retire. Ditch the highway expansion spending.
