Back before the crash, before CSE, and even before I worked in Public Works, I worked at Nortel. When I was hired, I was hired into the research arm, Bell-Northern Research (or BNR). The military bought the Carling campus, for $800 Million. I’ve got plenty of memories survived the crash, of the various buildings that I worked in. I was outsourced, to PwC, for a few years, then rehired when they realized that that wasn’t the brightest of decisions. I learned that while my paycheque said that I worked for them, I wasn’t invited to, or able to go to, any event of theirs. I was a PwC employee – sort of. I remember feeling without a home, because Nortel threw me out, and who took me in, didn’t.
