On March 10, 2017, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation`s (CBC) Go Public newscast reported that TD Bank employees had admitted to increasing their clients` lines of credit, overdraft amounts and visa limits without advising them, which is against the law, under pressure to meet sales targets. A TD financial advisor says she « invested clients` savings in funds that were not appropriate because of the pressure of the SR [the proceeds of the sale] ». Another admitted to minimizing product risk and said, « I was forced to lie to customers just to achieve revenue goals. » In an internal letter to employees, Andy Pilkington, executive vice-president of branch banking, wrote, « We don`t believe that [CBC]`s history is an accurate representation of our culture, » but the report was an opportunity to « stop, reflect and ask ourselves… how to do better for our employees and customers.
