Major investor sells off BlackBerry shares

Interesting times in Canadian business after news broke that Fairfax Financial, which has long been one of the biggest boosters of BlackBerry, had sold off a big chunk of stock and was no longer the beleaguered Canadian smartphone maker's largest shareholder.

Because I'm always looking for the why behind the story, I picked up my pen - okay, keyboard - and started writing. Turns out there's more to this story than initially meets the eye.

The resulting piece was published on Yahoo Canada Finance this morning:
Making sense of Fairfax's BlackBerry selloff

A beleaguered brand, to be sure Carmi. I enjoyed the article. My doctor was once an ardent Blackberry user. This too has changed.
