This paper claims that a keiretsu structure does not exist in the Canadian financial system and therefore Buckley' analysis is incorrect. Furthermore, the paper critically examines Buckley's hypotheses and states that the fairly new Bankruptcy Act and especially Bill C-22 ensures a well-functioning, competitive, efficient, robust and highly contestable Canadian financial system.
