reportonbusiness.com: Rule change would allow Ottawa to buy bank stock: “Ottawa is looking at changing little-known rules that prevent governments from owning shares of Canadian banks and insurers, according to sources.

Doing so would not only allow the government to inject capital into banks if that ever became necessary, it could also make it easier for Canadian financial institutions to pull off foreign takeovers, and ease the way for sovereign wealth funds to invest in institutions here.”

Not sure if I should be concerned on this?
