It was requested a couple of times earlier this year that we add profile pages for each of the banks in the comparison chart. This is now ready: click on any of the bank names in the comparison chart or visit the profile index. On each profile page, you'll find basic information about the bank, the latest forum discussions, and the opportunity to read and submit reviews on each page. Please check it out, share your thoughts on the banks through the review functionality, and share your feedback on the profiles themselves in this forum.

Great idea, Peter. I've often thought this would be a good idea, too, and ties together the site's promotion of user-generated "reviews", polling, message board, company information and so forth all on individual profile pages.
If I had one suggestion, I would suggest adding small logos on the right-hand side of the profile page, which also link to the institution's main website.
As well, in the case of PC Financial, ING Direct and Ally, I would suggest the following:
* PC Financial - state that it is a partnership between Loblaw Companies Ltd. and CIBC, with the day-to-day banking, lending (excluding MasterCard) and investments operated by CIBC and its subsidiaries and the MasterCard & Insurance products operated by Loblaw and its subsidiaries, namely President's Choice Bank and PC Insurance Agency.
* ING Direct and Ally - some sort of disclaimer could be added that the acquisitions have not yet closed but regulatory approval is almost certain.
* The "Profiles" are one more aspect in making this site an all-encompassing, largely unbiased, Canadian bank information site to put "banknerd.ca" out of business *
