This week, Montreal will welcome hundreds of leaders from a business sector that is trying to "build a better world": The co-op sector. Co-op leaders from across Canada are meeting in celebration of the UN International Year of Co-operatives. Although awareness remains the biggest challenge for the co-op sector, it also presents an opportunity for government to step in and do some good.

Despite the ability of co-ops to offer clear solutions and leadership (two areas where critics crap on Occupiers for sucking harder than an airplane toilet), the Co-op Movement admittedly falls short in one area where Occupy thrives: grabbing your attention.

Did you think you were an adult already? Sorry. I too just learned I wasn't. It's kind of shocking, right? Or is it a relief (do I get better tax credits with that)? Well, researchers think we're in a whole new life stage they call "arrested adulthood."
