I was inspecting my bank statement to see what underhanded trick the bank had come up with this month when I discovered
A $6.75 extra charge for depositing cash into my account.
That explains why the teller asked me a week ago if I often deposited cash and if she should look into more banking options for me.
They are charging EXTRA to take the legal tender of the realm and stain their hands with it. The this is the exchange tender issued by the gov’t of Canada, signed by the Bank of Canada and recognized by the Queen.
This cannot even be legal!!! A 2% surcharge to accept Canadian currency in a Canadian bank? No way, no how legal.
Banksm are above Parliament, above the Queen?
Mr. Cullen (or your aides) do you read this forum? Here’s an issue to raise in Parliament. If Parliament still has the nerve to claim it makes the rules.
I intend to post a pdf of my statement online for all to see. With the name of the bank clear as a bell, for all to see…
tick tick tock. I’m awaiting some comments here first.
