MONTREAL, Oct. 9, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The Fonds de solidarité FTQ would
welcome appearing before a parliamentary committee, if asked to do so,
to answer questions regarding the governance measures it has in place
to protect shareholders.
Such a committee would provide the Fonds' officers with an opportunity
to show the changes the institution has made over the years since its
creation and especially in 2009. The improvements were made in the
areas governance, ethics and reputational risk.
Appearing before such a commission would be consistent with the Fonds'
ongoing efforts to keep the public, and more particularly, its
shareholders, informed of the steps being taken to ensure their savings
are carefully managed. These steps were announced by way of press
releases and more recently, were the topic of discussion in interviews
with the media.
