Subject: Superbowl Sunday

As I'm sure you are aware, this Sunday is the Superbowl, one of the cornerstones of the sporting calendar. Despite being a Canadian bank, this is one event that many of us in the U.S. take pretty seriously.

Please use your best judgment if clients are expected to be in the office or on the trading floor on Monday.

May the best team win!
