(Past Top Pick on April 13, 2017, Up 10%) It's Vanguard so it offers a low MER (which he likes) at 6 basis points, and this one drills down into the Canadian small-caps

This and a similar Vanguard ETG are nearly the same, except one is hedged and the other is not. He prefers not to be hedged, because he sees weakness in the Canadian dollar, to improve his return.

He doesn't know some of the stocks in this. MER isn't bad at 55 basis points. An interesting ETF, though nich-y for him. If you want to take on some of the risk, there's nothing wrong with this one. An interesting part of the marketplace and increasingly important. But what is the quality of the stocks in it?
