You have heard me talk about what happened in Australia 15 years ago when dividends where tax at around the same rate as cap gains. The US only did this 5 years ago. Well then it would not surprise you that only 40 out of the 100 top paying stocks are US a number of the top 100 are Aussies how can that be from a population the same as Florida.

  1. RBC Bank President Gordon Nixon - Salary $11.73 Million


    $100,000 - MISTAKE (FISHERMEN'S LOAN)


    I'm a commercial fisherman fighting the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC Bank) over a $100,000 loan mistake. I lost my home, fishing vessel and equipment. Help me fight this corporate bully by closing your RBC Bank account.


    There was no monthly interest payment date or amount of interest payable per month on my loan agreement. Date of first installment payment (Principal + interest) is approximately 1 year from the signing of my contract.
    Demand loan agreements signed by other fishermen around the same time disclosed monthly interest payment dates and interest amounts payable per month.The lending policy for fishermen did change at RBC from one payment (principal + interest) per year for fishing loans to principal paid yearly with interest paid monthly. This lending practice was in place when I approached RBC.
    Only problem is the loans officer was a replacement who wasn't familiar with these type of loans. She never informed me verbally or in writing about this new criteria.
