There is a saying: When nothing is going right, go fishing! Well the staff at PMU are going fishing this weekend. For those of you who have tried to access our broker portal this week, you may feel like you are in the company of the characters from “Gone Fishing”, Joe Waters (Joe Pesci) and Gus Green (Danny Glover), two bumbling guys trying to get to a much awaited fishing trip. But if you have watched the movie – Gone Fishing you will know that if anything can go wrong it will.

The PMU Gone Fishing movie
The managers at PMU, can relate since we have been plagued by things going wrong with the broker portal this past two weeks. In a comedy of bad luck, the portal was hacked (not seriously) but ironically a rogue movie link was embedded into the website.

In an effort to fend off more pirates (from June), we installed a firewall. Well, it worked so well that it blocked many brokers from being able to issue an “express” policy. So instead of twin outboards, things were moving along like a kicker motor.

And then to top off all of that, some network interruptions, totally interrupted the Quebec and many brokers received portal errors. Kind of a kin to being “skunked” when fishing!

Fisherman’s Trophy

Gone Fishing received a 2.3/10 on Rotten Tomatoes, a low point in Pesci and Glover’s acting career. Even though you may have rated PMU on the low scale this week, we hope you will remember all of our stellar offerings and best in class coverages especially on our Fisherman’s Trophy product.

We are optimistic that the fishing will be great across Canada in August and September, and to wrap up our Ride the Wave 2021 PMU Broker contest we are screening “Fisherman’s Trophy”. An award winning policy with star ratings.
