CALGARY, Alberta, March 26
CALGARY, Alberta, March 26 (Reuters) - The chief executive of Canada's third-largest bank said on Saturday he supports the takeover of the country's main stock market by the London Stock Exchange LSE.TO, providing tweaks are made to protect national interests.
"My hope is this deal goes through with some modifications that do protect some real national and regional interests. I'm optimistic and hopefully they can (make them)," Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS.TO) CEO Rick Waugh told reporters at a weekend meeting of Western Hemisphere economic leaders.
