    With provincial securities commissions putting the finishing touches on
the harmonization and mutual recognition process called the "passport system,"
are the Ontario and federal governments correct in opposing this system and
seeking to replace it with a single national body?
    At the invitation of the Montreal Economic Institute, two leading experts
will explain why they think one solution is better than the other :

    - Pierre Lortie, Senior Business Advisor with Fraser Milner Casgrain
    - Ian Russell, President and CEO of the Investment Industry Association
