Each year, LinkedIn dives into its own data and figures out who are the most influential users on the business-centric social platform.
The total amount of engagements, growth of followed, and the number of times a particular user was featured in editorial changes were all part of LinkedIn’s methodology when crafting its LinkedIn Top Voices 2017: Influencers list.
When the number-crunching dust settled, Canada’s Prime Minister came out on top. Well, almost, because second place is pretty close to the top. Unless you’re one of those cynics who says “second place is just the first loser,” because then you can take your Negative Nancy tone out of here, Trudeau would not approve.
LinkedIn’s brief profile on Trudeau’s influential role lists his favourite topics to discuss, like government policies (go figure) and how his government is constantly trying to improve the lives of Canadian citizens. What did I tell you about Trudeau being great at PR?
Trudeau apparently told LinkedIn he likes posting about the federal government’s business plans, which attracts “particularly high attention among professionals. Business and economics was listed as Trudeau’s “standout topic” by LinkedIn, specifically mentioning Canada’s National Housing Strategy.
But who had the audacity to beat out the best looking politician in the world? Who fell beneath the might of Trudeau in LinkedIn’s list of top influencers for 2017?
While there are a million and one spots to enjoy a 5 à 7 in the city, not everywhere does happy hour quite like this Montreal restaurant in the Village.
Resto Keela serves $6 drinks from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., including house draft beer, house red or white wine, and speed rail mixed drinks, which is a choice of vodka, rye, rum, or gin — a pretty hard drink deal to beat.
As for food, you can go every week and try a different $6 dish at happy hour. "The $6 bites change from week to week but we always offer 3-5 options," owners Kristin Murphy and Johnny Hamilton told MTL Blog.
I went on September 10 and got to try green beans with a cashew romesco sauce and feta crumble, chorizo sausage, chicken Kaarage with kimchi cucumbers, and organic cherry tomato salad with blue cheese. And I kid you not when I say these dishes all take your taste buds on a culinary trip to heaven.
Keela's full menu is also filled with tons of unique dishes for you to try. The celery root carpaccio is hands down my favourite.
Every Friday night, you can hear the sweet voice of Bud Rice sing live at the restaurant.
