Forget Wikileaks - Canada has its own little scandal involving Mark Carney, stolen documents and a mysterious list that groups RBC with other "too big to fail" banks. Like Julian Assange, there's another first-rate thief Canadians can thank.
The RCMP have located a stolen bag belonging to the governor of the Bank of Canada, Mark Carney.
On Nov. 1, a thief smashed the window of Carney's (the bank's) cars...The thief stole a bag containing classified bank documents.
Though the Bank of Canada called in the RCMP to help find the stolen goods, they insist the documents did not contain any market-moving information.
Bank spokesperson Jeremy Harrison says the documents had a Bank of Canada internal security classification, not a government of Canada security classification.
What does that mean?
What does that mean? Information so secret the Bank doesn't want anybody in government looking at it?
It is not yet known if all the documents have been recovered.
Where did the RCMP find the bag of stolen documents? Are there any suspects? None of this information has been released.
If there are any documents missing, will they contain any major information?
From the Financial Post:
Royal Bank of Canada has appeared on a list of banks that have been deemed by global authorities as being too big to fail, according to the Financial Times.
Could this have been a stolen list? So far there are no "sourced" reports.
On Friday December 3rd RBC announced a fourth-quarter profit loss.
