I just got some more news from Emil over at Questrade.
"I came across some news recently that I'm not sure if you know about, and thought you and your readers might be interested in.
As of June 26th, Scotiabank has bought out TradeFreedom Securities. This makes Questrade the last independent brokerage in Canada, and with Canada Day just around the corner, we decided to celebrate.
Please feel free to check out our site for the independence celebration promotion. It’s quite humorous. I hope it will spark a new conversation in your website."
Here's a link to their July promotion here.
