    MONTREAL, Dec. 7 /CNW/ -

    DATE:        Wednesday, December 12, 2007
    TIME:        2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
    LOCATION:    Tour Scotia
                 1002 Sherbrooke St. West, 8th Floor, Montreal

    WHAT:        Join us as Gareth Watson from the ScotiaMcLeod Equity
                 Advisory Group moderates presentations by Warren Jestin,
                 Senior Vice-President and Chief Economist, Scotiabank and
                 Vincent Delisle, Director of Portfolio Strategy, Scotia

    Warren and Vincent will discuss a number of topics related to the current
and future state of the Canadian economy. While the U.S. sub-prime mortgage
crisis and the flight of the loonie to parity with the U.S. dollar have been
grabbing the headlines, North American prospects also are being driven by a
number of powerful longer-term trends. Warren will provide his views about
what these complex factors mean for Canada.
    Vincent's area of expertise is Portfolio Strategy and Equities. His
presentation will focus on how Canadian investors can build their portfolios
over the next 12-18 months. Will he recommend stocks, bonds or cash? Join us
and find out:

    -   Whether he recommends U.S., Global or Canadian equities in 2008
    -   His recommendations on large cap or small, emerging or industrialized
    -   Which areas should benefit as investors re-price risk and central
        banks cut short-term interest rates.

    Highlights of Warren and Vincent's presentations will be provided in a
special report, along with a print-out of their power point presentation, in
English and French.
