Listed below are links to weblogs that reference $7.5 Billion in fees:


And banks each make upto $10 billion a year in profits. 5 big banks = $50 billion ...using your money to make it. Should we all put our money under the mattress?
So there were $7.5 billion in fees paid, that just means that the Canadian market is robust.
I find it ironic that this article is linked to a mortage broker talking about saving fees. Mortgage Brokers won't even divilge the fees that they make from the mortgages that they complete.
