    TORONTO, June 1 /CNW/ - Canadians will be saving more money today thanks
again to ING DIRECT. As part of its 10 year anniversary celebrations, ING
DIRECT is declaring June 1st National Save Your Money Day and deploying street

save their money. The ING DIRECT savings teams dressed in orange coveralls
will offer to pay ABM fees and other daily expenses such as coffees and

choice in banking, and a much-needed break from fees, service charges, and low
