Since I write about everyday issues, I get an immense amount of email. My readers often ask the same questions in response to my columns and blog posts.
Here’s what they want to know:
— How can banks raise the base rates on personal lines of credit during a recession when the Bank of Canada is lowering rates?
— How can door-to-door sellers promise savings on gas and hydro bills and then lock you into long-term deals at much higher prices?
— How can Bell and Rogers continue to do business when they make so many billing errors and their customer service is so horrible?
— How can financial advisers sell investment products that make them money but are not always in my best interest?
I’m posting some of their comments below, along with links to a petition to tell your MP you don’t approve of banks raising their rates.
