    Hey guys, What are your thoughts on lithium? I'm following NMX since it is a Quebec company and tries to expand its company. For my part, as I read some articles on the subject, I think that lithium will take a big piece of our future (electric cars, electronics, drugs, etc.).

    So, if investment products (stocks, GIC's longer than 5 years, bonds, etc.) are not covered by CDIC, does that mean that a bank could seize them to pay off any debts in case of bankruptcy? (Or is that not an issue because they are actually in the stock owner's name, not the bank's name?)
