I'm writing to urge you and the federal government to make the changes needed to ensure our big banks meet our needs, lend and invest our money responsibly, and remain Canadian-owned and controlled. The following key changes must be made to ensure better Canadian big banks See details: Facilitate the creation of a Financial Consumer Organization FCO to help consumers as recommended by the Task Force on the Future of the Canadian Financial Services Sector and a House and Senate committee inand an Individual Investor Organization IIOby requiring banks and other financial institutions to enclose an FCO information pamphlet in their mailings to customers, and an IIO information pamphlet in their mailings to shareholders, with both pamphlets inviting people to join the watchdog groups at a nominal annual membership fee; Require banks and trust companies to provide detailed information on loans, investments and services to customers, as required in the U.
S to track whether banks are fairly meeting the needs of individuals and businesses on a community-by-community level and, as in the U. Canadians have made it clear in every poll conducted over the past 15 years that they need, and want, better banks.
Please close these gaps by passing a law to ensure that all financial institutions in Canada serve all Canadians fairly and well, use our money responsibly, and can be held accountable for poor lending, investment or service records. And please do not let Canada's banks take over any other financial institution, or merge together, before you have set up the Financial Consumer Organization and Individual Investor Organization, and the strict bank lending, investment and service disclosure and evaluation system outlined above.
Please let me know what steps you are taking to introduce bills to close these bank accountability loopholes, to pledging in your party's election platform to close these loopholes.
My vote in the next election will very much depend on your response. I look forward to hearing from you. To see a summary of the IIO proposal, click here.
