TD Says Banks Tightening Lending Amid Housing Concern

Toronto-Dominion Bank Chief Executive Officer Edmund Clark said Canada’s banks are tightening lending standards in response to a “genuine concern” about the country’s housing boom and rising consumer debt levels.

“Household debt numbers are coming up to U.S. levels, so that is causing us a concern,” Clark, 64, said yesterday in an interview on Bloomberg Television.
