He said he sold his shares and then is left with 2 shares that came from the DRIP post-sale (sold after the ex-date)

I called and cracked my famous joke about Monica and Bill. I got the shares sold without commission.

Happy Ending :)

I asked the admin to waive the fee but they refused. So instead of DRiPing, they are paying me $0.48 cheque every 3 months, paying over $1USD in stamps to send me this cheque. Great way to keep my US e-Savings account at RBC active :P
Whoops... didn't realize my cheques are now $0.49. CHA-ching!

I contacted RBC direct investing few days ago.... told them this exact situation and I managed to sell my 2 great west life shares with $0 commission that resulted from DRIP. Will be more mindful of dividend dates going forward.
