MPs to debate Opposition proposal to cap ATM fees at 50 cents per transaction

  • Print

OTTAWA - The House of Commons will debate an Opposition motion today to cap fees Canadians pay to use automated teller machines.

Not wanting to be overshadowed by the Conservative government's "consumer first" agenda, the NDP says consumers should not have to pay $2 or $3 to withdraw their own money from a bank machine.

It's proposing a cap on ATM withdrawal fees of 50 cents per transaction.

Here are some other events happening today around Parliament Hill:

— Transport Minister Lisa Raitt will speak at the Canadian Club about rail-safety measures the federal government has put in place in light of the Lac Megantic, Que., disaster and other rail accidents.

— Prime Minister Stephen Harper's national security adviser, Stephen Rigby, will appear before the Senate national security and defence committee to discuss activities carried out by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service.

— CSIS director Michel Coulombe is scheduled to appear at the same committee later in the day to discuss sovereignty and security in the Arctic.

— And Gov. Gen. David Johnston will presents a series of awards from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.
