“Ottawa moves to bring bank oversight back under its sole control” by Barbara Shecter, Financial Post.

Financial Post quotes Toronto lawyer Stephen Clark in an article on the federal government’s decision to regain oversight of Canada’s banks.

The Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in the Marcotte case] countered decades of established practice and understanding that Ottawa alone was responsible for bank conduct, says Stephen Clark, co-chair of the financial institutions group at law firm Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP in Toronto.
