**is that because of a technology issue or a political issue?  I went to 
open up a brokerage account with a new broker because my current one doesn't 
seem to know how to trade Canadian stocks.  It turns out that I couldn't 
fill out a form online and wire money in as people could do in opening 
accounts in the past.  I needed to photocopy a birth certificate or a 
passport, provide multiple photo ID's in addition to my passport and 
disclose a fair amount of personal information.  I decided to  visit a 
regional office located in my city and let them handle the paperwork 
nightmare created by George W. Bush and the USA Patriot Act in response to 
Saudi Arabian terrorists funded with Saudi and Pakistani money who flew huge 
planes into some big buildings a few years back.
