The CEOs and business leaders on the COMPAS business panel take a tough line on white collar crime. By a ratio of 6:1 ratio, they believe that the federal government's tightening of laws against corporate crime did not go far enough instead of going too far.

The securities lawyer at Fasken who said that the Ontario Securities Commission was "extraordinary" in taking so much time to adopt enforcement tools that had long been used in the U.S. struck a strong chord with the business panel-76% agree with the lawyer, 1% disagreeing.

These are the key findings from this past week's Internet survey of CEOs and business leaders on the COMPAS panel. The weekly business survey is undertaken for Canadian Business magazine.
