RBC Royal Bank dismisses Dominica News Online article as ‘false news’

RBC RELEASE

Earlier today, the online news outlet Dominica News Online posted an article entitled “RBC Royal Bank of Canada to increase fees on certain services.”

In response, RBC Royal Bank issued the following statement:

“The article posted by Dominica News Online is based on a television broadcast which aired on TV6 Trinidad and Tobago in 2016 – over three years ago. To present this as current news is false, misleading, and a disservice to the residents of Dominica.

“RBC Royal Bank requested that a retraction and correction notice be issued by Dominica News Online. Until such retraction is issued, we are asking all other outlets to continue to exercise their usual journalistic due diligence when reporting on serious issues, and to not issue stories based on false information.”
