Threshold, can you give me one example of where this has happened in Canada in the last 10 years? Happy to look in to it and accept your theory if you can point actual evidence of such and not hearsay. There are always going to be illegal activities in many businesses but to suggest brokerages are colluding to hold the lid on this for a financing is pure nonsense. Call your broker to see if you can short this stock in any size. The stock is not moving higher because it is consolidating ahead of the imminent news release, plain and simple.
