Terry Fox has become a genuine Canadian hero and justifiably so.
His sacrifice has been an inspiration to generations of Canadians.
I remember seeing George Cohon, president of McDonald’s Canada, on television pledging a lot of money at the time.
I mentioned to one of the two franchisees that I thought it was great what McDonald’s just did.
He just looked at me and said:
That won’t cost head office a dime. They’ll just add this on to the franchisees’ tab.
Since then, I’ve always frequently noticed that “charity” can be twisted into a very self-interested and cynical concept.
