CALGARY — A list of companies that the U.S. securities regulator believes are operating in countries that Washington says sponsor state terrorism is arbitrary and incomplete, critics say.

The list, which includes several Canadian companies, was prepared by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to provide information to investors. But it has been criticized by both business and humanitarian agencies alike, because, among other things, it includes companies that have since withdrawn from the named countries – Cuba, Syria, Iran, North Korea and Sudan. read more
