My name is George Berger and I would like to welcome you to my blog.
I began this blog to discuss and put forward my point of view on communications strategies and the way various issues were not being handled properly. Soon it became apparent to me that I felt that many other issues and policies were not being handled properly, and that many issues `just plain, tick me off`. Sometimes, my point of view is may be unique or “unparalleled”. That is the reason why I call my blog “The Unparalleled Point”.
Over the years, I’ve seen enough gaffs, and I have plenty of gripes. As a result, in the future, you will see an on-going metamorphosis of issues and categories of issues that most likely will be expanding.
I take a great deal of time and thought to consider and research, each and every issue that I discuss. I also put a great deal of effort, and take a great deal of pride in my writing.
Blog Policy: My blog policy is that comments will always be welcomed and encouraged.
There will be some instances where comments will be edited or deleted as follows:
- Comments deemed to be spam or questionable spam will be deleted. Including a link to relevant content is permitted, but comments should be relevant to the post topic;
- Comments including profanity will be deleted immediately;
- Comments containing language or concepts that could be deemed offensive will be deleted immediately; and,
- Comments that attack a person individually will be deleted.
I also reserve the right to edit or delete any comments submitted to this blog without notice.
I only respond to those making comments when a full name is provided. As far as I concerned without providing a full name there is a lack of credibility on the part of anyone making a comment. If one makes a comment, he/she should stand up and be accountable. Anything less is just an indication of “verbal sniping” and will be deleted. I put my credibility “on the line” and so should everyone else.
This comment policy is subject to change at anytime.
A Bit About Me:
I was born, raised and currently live in Toronto, Canada. After attending York University and graduating with a degree in Geography-Urban Studies, I received a graduate degree in Urban Planning specializing in social and health planning from the University of Akron, in Ohio, U.S.A.
I have lived and worked in Toronto, Akron, Hamilton, and Calgary, Alberta.
Most of my experience is within the public service and political sectors where I have spent over 20 years. During this time I was the Assistant to a Federal Member of Parliament, Executive Assistant to the Chair of the Toronto Police Services Board, and Chair of the Employment Insurance Board of Referees for the District of Mississauga.
I am passionate about my city, and have always worked to make things better , and in general, to make things better for people. I have strong feelings about urban and social issues, and I am extremely interested in various social problems, particularly disability issues. These feelings are reflected in my work in communications, corporate social responsibility, stakeholder engagement, community issues and fundraising for many charitable causes.
I am a past chair of the William Lyon Mackenzie Collegiate Institute Parent-Teacher Council, as well as past Director of JVS of Greater Toronto, the Toronto Heschel School, and the Canadian National Exhibition.
I am currently a director of Rotary Cheshire Apartments, and the Canadian Helen Keller Centre which provide services to the deaf-blind.
I hope that you enjoy reading my posts on a variety of issues, and I hope that you will find them to be thought provoking. Please send me your thoughts. Suggestions about what I should write, will always be welcomed, too. The only catch is that I might not be prepared to write about them. Best wishes to all.
