September 30, 2018

Reminder: The next COC Quarterly Meeting and combined Annual General Meeting will be held on Thursday October 11th at 1:00 PM at the IFL.

We will be joined by our guest speaker Mr. Dave Patterson, "The 1492Guy". Dave is ‘the1492Guy’, professional speaker and international author. Dave reaches audiences across North America with his mix of passion, fun, practical communication, positivity, and understanding. Many wide-eyed attendees to Dave’s presentations have gotten lost in the long intriguing collection of Western Hemisphere accomplishments, innovations and inventions – all of them having occurred prior to 1492 European contact.  This presentation is a "Don't Miss!".

We hope to see you on October 11th. The meeting agenda is attached. Click Here

To date, there have been no volunteers to assume the executive positions for 2019. The following positions will be vacant: Chairman, Secretary & Assistant Secretary, and Director Social Events & Assistant Director Social Events. Job descriptions are available on request.

Letter to the Editor - regarding our story, “Bank of Montreal’s CP Hotel Branches - Flashback”

September 10, 2018

Doug Murray wrote to us recently and we are pleased to share his letter with you regarding our story, “Bank of Montreal’s CP Hotel Branches - Flashback”.

“As a former Manager at the Chateau Frontenac Branch, Quebec City in the mid-sixties, I noted your article with great interest. It was doubly interesting when I saw my name on one of the attached advertising brochures! It was a very interesting assignment and I had the opportunity to meet renowned business people and dignitaries on a regular basis. It was indeed an important link to the bank’s overall marketing customer relations endeavours. The hotel branches were indicative of the special and close relationship with Canadian Pacific and the bank.”   Doug Murray

Letter to the Editor 

September 7, 2018

John Brownwell, Parksville, British Columbia took us up on our request for more anecdotes regarding Brian Tokaruk's long career in BMO and recent retirement. We are pleased to share John’s letter and comments with you regarding our story,  “Half a Century and Some - A Tribute to Brian Tokaruk’s BMO Retirement”.


“I read with interest the comments made by some of the people Brian worked with over the years. I hope you can find a way to add my comments to those already published.

I noticed Brian had joined BMO Cyber Pensioners website just a few days ago and I wondered where he had been all these years. I have been retired for some 22 years so find myself a little out of the loop. I was surprised to hear Brian had been working all these years, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized this was still the Brian I first met so many years ago.”        CLICK to read more.


Half a Century and Some - A Tribute to Brian Tokaruk’s BMO Retirement

August 31, 2018

Brian Tokaruk, who worked in SAMU, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan retired from BMO on July 31, 2018 after half a century and some of dedicated service.  His friends and colleagues wanted to celebrate the occasion by paying him a tribute which is also a bit of a roast; all in good taste.  We hope it will give you a chuckle.

"If you have any comments regarding this story or perhaps one of your own, or would like to send us your comments about Brian Tokaruk’s retirement, please contact the BMO Cyber Pensioners News team at We look forward to hearing from you." 

Letter to the Editor - Bank of Montreal's CP Hotel Branches

August 27, 2018

Betty Geisinger, wrote us recently and we are pleased to share her letter with you regarding our article, “Bank of Montreal’s CP Hotel Branches - Flashback”.

I found this Facebook post quite interesting as my husband (John Geisinger) worked at Hotel Vancouver branch 1968/69 (I'm pretty sure those were the years.) He found he ran into such interesting people, many well known.  He certainly took those memories with him.”
