    BBD is a family controlled company and the family controls 79% of BBD.A stock (10 votes per share) versus BBD.B (1 vote per share). Canada is one of those banana republics that has a number of family controlled companies with dual class shares.

    Indeed, but it does not make sense to trade the A shares due to lower liquidity (trading volume).

    In the same train of thought, do you know the difference between stingray group's RAY-A and RAY-B? The financials are similar on yahoo finance and the balance sheet I saw did not differentiate the two.
