The man with the best job in the world....

#1 Unread post by ceemes »

....has to be the CBC's Rick Mercer of the Mercer Report. Not only has he flow with the Snowbirds, in CF-18's (twice), tandem jumped with the CF's Skyhawks, he gets to travel across Canada meeting all sorts of Canadians at their places of work and play. He also has almost unbelievable access to our PM's and can get them to go to Canada Tire to pick up some Super Plastic to fix up 24 Sussex Drive. And he gets paid to do it.

He also is a fairly good rider.

With the OPP Golden Helmets.

I got the chance to go drinking with a couple of the side-car riders who were in that clip. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. They also said he was a great guy. Most recently my niece met him with the air cadets and they also had great things to say about him. A great show worth watching if you are a cannuck!

You can find the Air Cadet segment on You Tube, who knows, you might just spot your niece on the telly.

Thanks Ceemes. I happened to catch it just the other night on TV and unfortunately she didn't make the cut. She said that he was hamming it up for the segment but had actually been in cadets himself when he was younger.

He is living the best time of his life. I am sure that he had so much fun on his previous adventures.

There is no one best job in the world for all the people. Everyone has a dream to work in a company he likes or create his own business. I wonder about the variety of jobs and different kinds of business opportunities that are available now literally for anyone. Great time we are living in.
