I have called the 2 full service brokers I use and asked the following:
- what is your firms position on the governments actions?
- what are you doing to help trust owners?
- are they lobbying on your behalf to get the government to back down.
Canacord has done a great job, in the papers and on the radio
but the big guys BMO and RBC seem to be doing little.
Wood Gundy put out a position paper on trust, very weak
Tell you broker you want them to get on the bandwagon with
full support from head office or you will move your account.
Watch them get on our side quickly, we need them to work on this.
The old story it is easier to keep an existing customer than
to find a new one, this gives us some leverage.
