It seems almost everybody buys the B shares, not the A shares, for ATD/B.TO--I'm embarrassed to say I'm not sure why.
Whereas I am extremely clear on the difference between Berkshire A and B shares!

From the ATD website:
"Alimentation Couche-T@rd Inc. has two classes of shares: Class A Multiple Voting Shares and Class B Subordinate Voting Shares. Class A is mainly held by founders and certain institutional investors. Class B is normally the most traded since it is held by a greater number of shareholders. Each Class A carries 10 votes and each Class B carries one vote."

I tried to write the full name of the company and received this nice message:
"Our profanity filter has detected words that may be inappropriate. Please remove the following word(s) from your message: t@rd, T@rd"

I'll go find what "t-a-rd" means in English...
