I’m Rob Tétrault. Until my son was born neither myself, or my wife Michelle had ever heard of Congenital CMV, the number one cause of infant disability in North America. After seeing the effects of CMV we wanted to make a difference. The result: the Canadian CMV Foundation and Le Classique, Western Canada’s largest outdoor 3-on-3 ball hockey tournament. So, if you’re 10th and 11th February at Whittier Park, it’s hockey, a Friday night social, live bands, kids activities, food, prizes and more. Proceeds help fund CMV Research.

Rob: New Flyer is another Manitoba companies.
Andrew: The bus maker.
Rob: The bus maker, and they’ve acquired Motor Coach Industries, tons and tons of synergies there. In my mind, the market is underestimating what those synergies are going to be, and Soubry is a great CEO and they’re doing it the right way for sure.
Rob: I’ve stayed away from Valeant for a while. A lot of volatility lately, a lot of ups a lot of downs and this whole Walgreens Deal, honestly, the market doesn’t like the fact that Mr Pearson’s out.
Speaker 2: How risky is this company financially?
Rob: It’s too risky for me. There are too any unknowns and I want answers before myself and my clients are going to get into the stock.
Speaker 1: What’s interesting to you right now in this crazy market environment, Rob?
Rob: Well, I’m really interested in oil. I really like financials. Somewhere near here in my mind there will be a bottom in the next…whatever it is, three, six, nine months. I do know that long-term I’ll be happy that I bought financials around this time.
Rob: My favorite for sure at this point would be Boyd. I like what you’re doing. I like it at this point. I think this is going to be an $80.00 stock in 2016.
Rob was interviewed by CTV on Wednesday November 1st 2017. He spoke about his take on the marijuana sector and the future outlook of this market in Canada.
Rob: It’s a new industry, so people think, “Oh, imagine if I were to have got in on the tech industry at the start.
National Bank Financial Portfolio Manager, Rob Tetrault says, Investors are keen to get in on cannabis. He says, with several new companies trading publicly, people looking to invest should proceed with caution.
Rob: These companies, you’ve got to look at how much capacity they have. Are they actually licensed already? Do they have distribution? Are they going to be able to produce? Are they going to be able to expand? Well, at the end of the day, Canadians can only smoke so much marijuana.
Being a long-time Tragically Hip Fan, Rob talks on BNN about his experience at the Hip’s last concert in Winnipeg. Being a proud patriotic Canadian and big hockey fan, the Tragically Hip were a top favorite in Rob’s music playlists year after year. The Kingston band are pioneers of Canadian rock music and have left their footprint all over the world with their unique sound and on-stage performances. It’s never easy saying farewell to a legendary singer like Gord Downie. His music and lyrics live on and every fan will always cherish their Tragically Hip moments and memories. RIP Gordon Downie, you were one of the best music personalities this world has seen and you will be truly missed.
Transcript (Andrew Bell and Robert Tétrault)
Andrew: Just moments ago Toronto’s Mayor officially claimed today, August 10th “Tragically Hip Day”. Now Rob Tétrault is our guest-host, Paige, and he was at the concert in Winnipeg when they sang Bobcaygeon and they talked about the Constellation Revealing themselves, I bet a lot of people were crying. I think I would.
Rob: It was a very, very emotional moment, Paige, and the hottest ticket in Winnipeg by far, more than our playoff games. Resale values were through the roof on the secondary market. So much so that they had to intervene and scalpers were actually arrested and charged in Winnipeg. There were a couple of sting operations. It was really big in Winnipeg. I was at the concert, very, very emotional, took my sister who went to her first ever concert at the Tragically Hip and Gord, when he made his farewell walk around the stage at the end, it was a little dusty in there, yeah, a little dusty. My eyes were…yeah, a little dusty.
Andrew: Rob Tétrault, one of the greatest Canadian bands ever?
Rob: I think so, yeah. I’m a big, big believer in Canadian stories. I’m a proud, proud Canadian. I’m proud to have seen the last concert in Winnipeg of Tragically Hip.
