Help Find Trina Hunt - Missing Person in Port Moody, BC, Canada

0 COOOOOOMMENTS! Now you speak up!
Hello all,

I wanted to make this important post, in the off chance someone has seen something or recognizes Trina.

From the Police:
The Port Moody Police Department is attempting to locate Trina June HUNT, aged 48 years. Trina was last seen at her Heritage Mountain residence on the morning of January 18, 2021. She is believed to be wearing a black North Face jacket, with a teal green collar, and pink and purple Cloudflyer shoes. She is 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 120 lbs.

She is believed to be wearing a black puffy North Face jacket and purple/pink running shoes, as seen in this photo.

The community was out in full force searching the forested areas, creeks and bridges near her home. Neighbours were seeking out, noting and submitting doorbell and dash cam footage from January 18, 2021 (the day she went missing). Her community desperately wants to see her come home. She left the house with no phone, wallet or keys, which has added to the confusion of how she disappeared. 

I had originally hoped they could ping her phone, or get a notification off of a credit card, but neither of those things seem possible.

A community Facebook page was also established by family and can be found here.

If you have seen anything that could be helpful in locating her, please contact the Port Moody Police at 604-461-3456. 

I can't stop thinking about this woman and her family. Heartsick doesn't begin to describe the feeling. I so deeply hope she is safe and well somewhere and this will all make some sense soon.

Please take care everyone.

So Apparently Investing Isn't Just For Rich People? Here's An RRSP Calculator...

2 COOOOOOMMENTS! Now you speak up!

 Hello all,

I'm still kicking over here. How are you all? I've been spending most of my time on TikTok and Instagram, mostly to keep me from feeling the deep and unsettling boredom and doom that months and months and months of a pandemic has brought forward. Not even posting... just mindlessly scrolling because I want something to distract me from the anxiety.

Anyway, I wanted to come on and mention a website that helps with Canadian RRSP (Registered Retirement Savings Plan) stuff. (No, I am NOT getting paid for this and I don't benefit at all if you click through - you're a strong, independent Reader - I'm not gonna tell you what to do).

This has ALWAYS intimidated me. Anything investing. Anything taxes. I even get scared filling in the blanks in the automated online tax program we use every year. But I started talking to the Hubs and I realized that I know JACK SHIT about the right way to save up for later on, and I've always felt too intimated and stupid to look into it or get official financial advice.

Toss in a pandemic, and I'm not going ANYWHERE or INTO ANYONE'S OFFICE to ask questions.

This site lets you put in your income, how many soul/energy sucking tiny humans children you have, spouse income and CRB (not CERB!) info to tell you how much money it makes sense to deposit in your RRSP. You need your tax notice of assessment ("NOA") from last year that tells you how much "room" (aka how much you can make it rain, aka the actual MAXIMUM number of dollars the ol' government will LET you put in that RRSP) this year.

It's actually pretty cool because after using the little calculator on the site, I realized that at a certain point, it doesn't make sense to put money over a CERTAIN amount in there because the benefit to me drops off. The Hubs was faster/better at understanding and explaining it to me, but it was neat to see it laid out, and in chart form. You know me, easily distracted by colours and/or shiny things.

I always thought investment stuff was only for rich people, but an RRSP is something that anyone can start, and if you can figure your shit out, the government will actually cut you some tax breaks. 

Anyway, hope it helps. Life is pretty depressing right now. We still have to file our damn taxes. I hate taxes, but little tools that one make it suck a little less certainly don't hurt.
