    About 10 years ago, I switched all my main banking over to a 'kiosk' bank because I was receiving lousy service from TD, but kept the LOC I'd had with them since '95, 'just in case'. Since '00 I haven't even used or carried a balance on the LOC (which I recognize makes me a bad customer), but this really is the straw that broke this camel's back and my final tie to TD.

    As of this week, I am no longer a TD customer and have even redirected any remaining RRSPs I had with TD Financial to another investment house.

    TD should consider this a mammoth mistake similar to the poor customer service they delivered following their merger with Canada Trust, that caused a mass customer exodus.

    Sheesh! What some (short-sighted) people will do for a buck.
