Kenneth J. Rathgeber, Managing Director ScotiaMcLeod
Scotia Capital is very pleased with the proposed changes to the rules.
Thank you for your comments.
 
Ray Tucker, Managing Director, Trade Execution Services TD Newcrest
TD Securities Inc. believes that the ultimate aim of marketplace regulation and rule reform should be investor protection. We believe that investors are best served by marketplaces that are fair and visible.
We agree, and CNQ will implement the rule change immediately upon OSC Approval.
 
We wish to express our support for the proposed rule changes as we believe that they will improve market visibility for clients and allow dealers to provide better service through automation. In our opinion, the lack of control dealers have over their own market improving orders is an impediment to the development of the market. Obstacles of this nature make it difficult for dealers to meet their best price and best execution obligations, particularly when the complexities of a multiple market environment are added.
 
We hope that CNQ will move swiftly to bring these changes into effect.
