Swindlers challenge the idea that the average Canadian can expect fair treatment and a fair return when investing their money; clearly there is one set of rules for the wealthy and another for the rest of us. Is the system broken? Or is it working exactly the way it should for those it is designed to benefit? Is Canada really better at financial regulation than the United States or is it 80 years behind?
