    This bank has offered greatmortgages for the last century to Newfoundland residence. I hope new regulations does not prevent them from offering the same great services they have offered to me and my extended family over the last half century.

    I think that our banks are trying the best they can to remedy what happened back in 2008. However, for the moment, it's perfect for people to go out and purchase foreclosure homes and try to do a good deed by selling them to people who really need them at a reduced price.

    It has been been suggested that a branch of The Bank of Nova Scotia in Edmonton , has allegedly given The Minister of State for the Status of Women Helena Guergis , a mortgage for the full cost $880,000 of an Ottawa home without requiring a down payment . Is the Scotiabank a subsidiary of The Bank of Nova Scotia ?

    Yes, Polly, they are one in the same. Several years ago Canadian banks, in an effort to shed their Canadian (provincial) images opted to re-brand themselves so they would be seen as more serious players on the world stage. Bank of Montreal became Mbanx; Toronto Dominion became TD; the Royal Bank of Canada, RBC; and the Bank of Nova Scotia, ScotiaBank.

    I am much afraid that Mr.Waugh must be living in a fantasy land if he thinks people have the appetite to allow the banks to have more freedom.

    I think we have already witnessed first hand what happens when you allow the banking industry to basically - police - themselves.

    Rick is just another fat cat who doesn't want regulation of the banking industry for his own personal gain.

    Verdun is right, this guy is now writing his own pay cheque while sucking every last dollar out of consumers. His . . . it could happen to you is just a recycling of the old American Dream. The sooner banks, drug companies and insurance companies are legislated into good corporate citizens, the better off society will be . . .

    Excellent article. Hopefully whatever regulations are finalized will allow our banks to build on their strengths and keep our borrowing costs down.
