Thanks, fixed both. Cut-and-paste error.

Wasn't sure where to best post this article in today's Globe & Mail Investor Clinic - by John Heinzl
Understanding MERs, management fees and other costs
It starts with -
What’s the difference between a management fee and management expense ratio (MER), or are these just different terms for the same thing?

No, the management fee and MER are not the same. This has long been a source of confusion for investors, and the uneven disclosure of some mutual fund and ETF providers hasn’t helped
- and he explains how to dig out the TER in your fund or ETF (Trading Expense Ratio)

In addition there is his Video: How to find the true yield of your dividend ETF
