Should this page be moved to lower case?

Any thoughts?

Wikipedia article title is capitalized, Guaranteed Investment Certificate. Other Canadian financial institutions mostly use capitalized, but not 100%. Recommend leaving as upper case. Peculiar Investor 09:27, 24 November 2013 (MST)

More detail on tax treatment. i.e. outside of rrsp/tfsa/rrif/resp taxed on the interest earned, whether actually received in the year or not. fully taxed at marginal tax rate - no favourable treatment like dividends or capital gains.

Any thoughts?

number of dollars invested in GIC's in Canadian banks

I don't think I've ever seen any statistics published with this data. Any thoughts of if/where the statistics could be found? Peculiar Investor 21:01, 22 March 2017 (CDT)

Maybe OSFI? Sorry I don't have time to check. --Quebec 19:05, 23 March 2017 (CDT)
The closest I could find was Statistics Canada, but there was no detail for GICs. --LadyGeek 13:58, 25 March 2017 (CDT)
Since a source cannot seemingly be found and the data wouldn't be static, I'm going to close the Reader feedback as 'Resolved - This was used or considered for the page'. I'm not sure how having the statistic would provide any value to a GIC investor anyways. --Peculiar Investor 15:52, 25 March 2017 (CDT)
