From a Neighbor to the North

BY ALBERT STAL

My heartiest congratulations on your centennial countdown. I have been a subscriber to the JofA for many, many years and read with interest topics applicable to auditing and accounting matters.

As a sole practitioner, Canadian chartered accountant and certified financial planner for small- and medium-sized businesses and individuals, I have, over the years, on several occasions had the opportunity to lift good ideas in the preparation of specific assignments.

I read most articles and refer quite often to published practice tips and the executive summary when topics are beyond my professional needs.

Again, my best wishes for the JofA’s continued publication of interesting issues.
