The head of the International Monetary Fund says nations trying to fix their financial systems should follow Canada’s example.
Christine Lagarde says Canada is a leader in creating policies intended to rein in the build-up of household debt.
Lagarde points to Finance Minister Jim Flaherty’s move to boost down payments on new mortgages for homebuyers as a great example of restraint.
She made the comments in a speech last night in Toronto.
