Separating Fact from Fiction Canadian Securities Regulation in the 21st Century

September 19, 2007
Doug Hyndman, Chair, British Columbia Securities Commission
Economic Club of Toronto

Speech Summary:

I would like to thank the Economic Club of Toronto for giving me this opportunity to speak to you today about Canadian securities regulation. The recent turmoil in global financial markets has reminded us why we need efficient and responsive regulation for Canada's markets. It has also added another dimension to the seemingly endless debate in this country about whether our decentralized regulatory structure is up to the job.
