Ahh ... The Glories Of The 'Unfettered' Free Market!!
But how do Canada's right wing thinkers react to this story? .... They fault the victims!
"Quebec's securities regulator has ordered the assets of a small Montreal investment firm frozen after several investors came forward complaining they had stopped receiving payments and the owner of the firm could not be reached.
In a press release, the L'Autorité des marchés financiers says it has ordered a stop "to all activity, direct or indirect" of the Earl Jones Corporation in order to probe its assets.
A message left on the answering machine of the longtime investment adviser based out of the Montreal suburb of Pointe Claire earlier today suggests investors might not see their money again.
"If you are calling regarding your account with us, we are not in the position to remit your funds," a male voice on the recording says.
"In the meantime, phone calls and mail will not be answered."
Earl Jones has managed assets and estates for more than 20 years."
