If you think TD is going to leave I hope you enjoy a nice long dream while you are sleeping.
TD owns Ameratrade and they are a great source of revenue. In fact it is one of the main
reasons TD operates in its trade name form down there.
There are all kinds of Canadian financial institutions that own large parts of the American
financial investment industry. There is no way they will leave though. And who cares who
stayed open on Martin Luther King day. As long as they close for Christmas they will be fine.

Someone's got a hard-on for TD and stupid news stories. 25 protestors is a non-story. It's ridiculous to think that a bank should not be open on holidays.

American's tend to have a different view for stat holidays than we do in Canada. Opening on a holiday may not be that big a deal.

They even get mail on Saturdays.

One of Harper's Banks? Really? Why would he bother with the PM gig?

Maybe he's just cruising for chicks? Isn't that how it goes? First you get the money (banks) then you get the power (PM gig) then you get the women.

Nicely done! Although Freedom 55 is London Life, but that's just nit picking on my part,

Don't know about Regis but it is my bank because that's where my checking account with the dwindling balance resides.

All in good time. I'm sure there are many, many other paranoias we've yet to encounter as well.

Kind of ironic (to me) that T.D. is under the telescope lately. They had my mortgage for two years because they gave me the lowest rate (2.74%) but when it came time to renew they wouldn't go below 2.9% for a one year term and I spoke to the woman four times including once in person, but she wouldn't budge. I went to my own bank, and within 5 minutes had one for 2.5%. T.D. woman phoned me a few days later and was astounded that I was quitting them not to mention the 2.5%. Five minutes later she phones back, the manager is upset she says and she can also offer me the 2.5%. Sorry I said. What's the matter with these people? Don't they realize a customer's value until they lose them?

He probably had two bits in an account with them and pissed them off!

Banks are funny that way. Somehow they think that us peons have loyalty to an institution that screws us regularly. Much like our governments.

Damn those TD branches for not working bankers hours. I find it highly insulting and inconvenient to go in after work and have tellers available.

I know right? Now the rest of us don't have anyone to complain about for working bankers hours! They're upsetting the natural order of things.

Really though! My salary is for bankers hours...but I hardly ever work that. Last week I had one day where I was at work from 7:00 am until 10:20 pm, this week I'll log similar hours. I've probably exceeded my hours by about 25% since Christmas. In the real world we don't all get to work bankers hours. The audacity!

Some us even have to work on Christmas and New Years Day! Damn fish won't take their holidays.

Call up the guys at CUPE; they might be able to get those renegade fish in-line

The wiz doesn't like the TD because they followed a court order to seize funds from his accounts to pay back taxes and reimburse his fathers estate, for the money he embezzled.

You gotta hate it when that happens.. It's frustrating enough to even consider giving up embezzlement all together.

Yep.
We've dealt with RBC, CIBC, HSBC, TD, BMO, SB and and few Credit Unions, and the only two that haven't screwed up something fairly big were the TD and HSBC.

Not that their idea of holidays would work anyway. I've never seen a fish with a calendar on its wall.

Thank goodness I'm paid by the hour! Maybe my boss is a fish because she never seems to take holidays either?!?

I'm sure there is a whole host of institutions out there just waiting to be blamed for his wrong doing.

Tell me about it! How is anyone supposed to make a dishonest living now a days?

I just get to take time off...that is when there's not something critical coming down the line on to my department. This current trial is intense...literally squeezing the sh it out of fish, after they're euthanized of course. It's the sacred cow at work, tens of millions of dollars in sales if this product gets registered.
