This isn't any regular Ikea crib set. I believe this crib was blessed by a swedish shaman. If you think this is too bold a statement, or simply don't believe in the power of swedish shamanism, then...

Another Merino Wool Sale on at Canadian Cartel. #deals #canada 
You need to sign up for an account, but the deals are usually worth it and they only email when there are new sales posted.

A clear win by This Is That!
 
What started out as a joke went viral online as Canadians and even police were sucked in by a satirical story from CBC Radio's This is That.

In fact, the story was just that — a fictional tale about a fake law banning drivers from eating breakfast sandwiches while driving due to an increase in crashes.

While I loved the Canadian Cartel brand, I am sure the change to Go Gear is going to mean even more/better deals on outdoor gear for Canadians

My wife bought new tires from Canadian Tire in Abbotsford (I cringed) a couple of months ago. I have always thought Canadian Tire was the fast food of Canadian Mechanics and as such a place to avoid for any auto work. As we rolled into Squamish this weekend, we notice our rear tire was very low, so we pumped it up and headed to our campground. Next morning the tire was low again, so I thought "maybe it is a good thing we got it at CT." and headed in to get it fixed. To their credit, they booked us in as soon as they could and said the tire would be fixed under warranty. After a short while they called and told me that I needed a new tire, which would cost me $140. I had to request for it to be replaced under warranty and they said that was fine. When I picked up the car I was surprised with an $90 bill. I can understand some shop fees, tire levy, usage pro rating and tax. These guys pro rated my tire at 25% usage, after only 10,000 Km on a tire rated for 140,000. There is no way it was worn 25%. My calculations say 7%, but I am willing to round it up to 10, or even 15%, if I was really generous, based on the age and condition of my car. So they charged me $50 for a tire proving that their warranty is as useless as a third nipple. Long story short, they have the name Crappy Tire for a reason. Some locations may have good staff, but not this one. I would avoid Squamish Canadian Tire's service department, and all others, if possible.

They lied to get me in the door! Wasted time and a trip because they told me over the phone that they had the wheels I was looking for on a Mazda MPV. "Just got one in!" They said. Got to the yard and looked at all 50 cars they had, not one MPV, no wheels either. Thanks for wasting my time Capt'n.

I am writing this review on behalf of my wife who bought a power head at Midvalley earlier in the month. The power head cost a little more than we wanted to spend, but we were fine with that as we like supporting local businesses. After a couple of weeks it became apparent that the power head was junk and our non-central vacuum did a better job on carpets, so my wife returned the power head and hose that we didn't need. During the refund the guy working there repeatedly made her feel bad about returning the unit and kept trying to upsell her to a more expensive power head. This may have been a good option if the service was friendly, but at this point my wife just wanted out. In the end he loaded up the guilt as leverage to convince her to buy another attachment for the built in hose we already had. If a company can't stand by their product they can at least make it up with over the top service. We will not be back at Midvalley as my wife left there feeling like she was not respected as a customer, she was talked down to and manipulated into buying something else. We don't like shopping at big box stores when we don't have to, but in this case, if it is the only other alternative for vacuums that is what my recommendation would be.

I hear the past complaints on the poor communication skills. I received a bill for a broken sprinkler head caused by my tenant using a broken garage door (I didn't feel this cost should be passed on to myself or my tenant). When i contacted Diversified to get this rectified a message was left for them to contact me. After they did not contact me I called back. The person I was dealing with spoke to me with a snarky attitude, somehow forgetting that it is us, their clients that pay their bills. I am extremely disappointed in my condo board for engaging business with such a company. I hope it only gets better, but my expectations are low.

Called them to get the hitch adapter that I needed. The person on the phone refused to sell it to me giving me a condescending spiel as to why it was a bad idea, without finding out first what my intended use was. Sure it reduces the weight capacity of my hitch, but if I am only using it for very lightweight bulky items I don't see the problem. I can understand educating the customer, but find out the intended use prior to giving a lecture and leave out the condescending tone, it is insulting, I will get my part elsewhere and will not use Clearbrook for any of my future hitch needs.

COP has a great snowboard park within Calgary's city limits. Sometimes their marketing can be a little off as it is run by people who have no clue about the industry. Don't be thrown off by their clueless nature. The guys who make the snowboard park know what they are doing and do it well. I would not recommend working for COP or WinSport Canada unless you are looking for a seasonal gig with pass benefits. They are a poorly run operation that I have worked for twice and will not return to, not recommend friends to work for.
