Quebec securities regulator executive says watchdog has ‘completely reformed’ its conduct – The Globe and Mail

The head of Quebec’s securities regulator says the watchdog has overhauled the way it handles investigations in the wake of its last major insider-trading case, vowing his teams won’t repeat the same mistakes as it tries to bolster its credibility in fighting white-collar crime.

Louis Morisset, chief executive of the Autorité des Marchés Financiers, said in an interview Tuesday that the watchdog has “completely reformed” the way it conducts search and seizures, and processes the material obtained, since a judge lambasted the AMF for its shortcomings five years ago in what was known as the Amaya affair.
