Somebody said he died because of heat stroke. Really? How the fuck could you know that considering the coroner still didn't know at the time.

    umm because the coroner DID release that in the end and no charges were pressed because he died due to his own causes not the employees. research your information if he killed him hed be in jail, but hees not, were some laws broken sure but not murder. honestly people

    Re: Canadian Tire 777 Upper James, Hamilton, - worst place to shop - scary place

    I used to be a regular shopper at the upper james store, but just yesterday I went in and tried to return a microwave oven that did not work properly. Because I had kept it for almost a month I was told that it was not a returnable item, and the rude woman behind the counter told me that they are not a rental company. I wil l spend my money at walmart from now on

    Sorry, must be more to the story. They have to deal with the defect. It is the law and they can not refuse to help you. Ask for a new one if it is defective. You usually have at least a year on small appliances.

    Your situation is fairly common: a loyal shopper who is suddenly being treated poorly on a return.

    CT has horrible policies on defective items. They will claim for some items that your only option is to use the manufacturer's warranty.

    If it were unused and resellable, they should have given you a refund within at least the first 30 days.

    Some people try a different CT stores, where the staff aren't so paranoid about fraud.

    You can also try their 1-800 customer service number, to see if they will help.

    Another option is to apply your rights under the Ontario Consumer Protection Act to cancel the transaction because the item is not 'of merchantable quality".

    See the following link to post #110 (03-09-2011) for more details:

    "EVOLVE TREADMILL,TEMPO -Canadian Tire ,3516 8th ave NE Calgary - CAN'T BE RETURNED!!!!!!!"

    it's best to call the Ministry for advice if you want to go this route.

    Beware that there are store owners and representative trolling this web site, harrassing people who pass on this information.

    An excellent option. Or Costco, too. Anywhere is better than CT.

    If what DavidLer says is true, you would be able to find examples of BBB resolution, lawyer's testimonials, class action suits against CTC, news stories, etc. supporting his claims. Google is a wonderful tool.....but no examples of concrete proof....I wonder why?

    Can I call 'em, or what?

    -----

    Former CT Customer:

    - Check into things for yourself.
    - Try another CT store's returns desk.
    - Try the 1-800 service number for CT.
    - Ask at the Ontario Ministry of Consumer Protection at 1-800-889-9768.

    The link to my earlier post doesn't seem to work, so I'm reposting that information for you now.

    You might find Ellen Roseman's articles on refunds for defective items interesting.

    Good luck to you!

    -----

    Regarding the requirement for Ontario retailers to provide refunds for defective products, two Ontario laws are especially relevant:
    - The Sale of Goods Act (SGA of 1994), to be found at "Sale of Goods Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. S.1".

    - The Consumer Protection Act (CPA of 2002) to be found at "Consumer Protection Act, 2002 - O. Reg. 17/05"
    -----

    To head off the usual questions, some notes are in order regarding policies and warranties:
    - There is no law requiring a store to provide a refund or exchange simply because a customer changed their mind.

    - However, most stores have their own policy regarding refunds and exchanges for ‘change of mind’ returns, in order to attract customers.

    - When a product is defective, a customer may be able to obtain an exchange or a repair using the manufacturer’s warranty, or a separately-purchased extension to that warranty.

    - A store provides a policy. A manufacturer provides a warranty. It's important to keep that straight.

    - Nothing in the manufacturer's warranty limits what the store could choose for a policy regarding refunds or exchanges.

    - If a customer would prefer a refund (instead of an exchange or repair), the laws of Ontario require that the retailer (not the manufacturer) provide a refund, as explained at the links provided.
    Regarding the links I have listed:
    - The links are to reputable sources who have experience with and understanding of the SGA and CPA.

    - If you believe a statement on one of the referenced sites is incorrect, please contact the maintainer of that web site.

    - The list of links is continuously being expanded, so I’m interested in additional links, if others know of them.

    - Links to incomplete, ambiguous, or apocryphal sites are of little value. Especially links to manufacturers' warranties.

    "If the product's a dud, insist on your money back - moneyville.ca Blogs"
    “… retailers have to sell you a product that works.If you find a dud in the package when you open it, don't let them shrug off their obligation to give your money back.”
    2 – Ellen Roseman, “Working to fix products that don’t work"

    Roseman: Working to fix products that don't
    "I’m shocked that some people wait so long to get appliances working again. Under the law, manufacturers and retailers have a duty to supply products fit for the intended purpose … If you’re stranded, go to small claims court and cite the Sale of Goods Act as an argument to get your money back."

    I included this for the clarity of some descriptions, such as:
    “there is … an 'implied condition of merchantability' (freedom from defects) where the seller regularly deals in the product and the purchaser has not inspected the goods before purchase [SGA s.15].”
    I also like:
    “Any attempt by a supplier … to avoid or vary the above-noted (SGA and CPA) statutory warranties or conditions with respect to consumer transactions, is void … You cannot give these rights up, even if you want to.”
    6 – “Is that legal”, the Free Online Legal Guides to Ontario and Canadian Law – Civil Remedies

    "LEGAL GUIDE: CONSUMER PROTECTION LAW (ONTARIO) - Ch.7: General Civil Remedies (I)"
    “As the consumer's consideration in a consumer agreement is invariably money paid (and maybe some 'traded-in' property), restitution to the consumer by a supplier is relatively straightforward. The supplier shall "within 15 days after the day the consumer gives notice to the supplier ... that the consumer is cancelling the consumer agreement"
    7 – The Legislative Assembly of Ontario.

    The most reputable source of all: the people who created the CPA.

    "Legislative Assembly of Ontario | Bills & Lawmaking | Past & Present | 37:3 Bill 180, Consumer Protection Statute Law Amendment Act, 2002"

    Note that a link I previously included has been found to be obsolete, and has not been included in this updated list.

    I hope this is of assistance to consumers who are seeking to obtain a refund (or even just an exchange) for a defective item.

    You may want read ALL of Ellen Roseman's posts....she contradicts herself several times on this issue and actually speaks quite highly of Canadian Tire. I don't think she has any issues with CT's return policy.

    This is off the topic of return policies, but someone needs to tell the true story.

    So, let us feel the love:

    "Canadian Tire overcharging customers on eco fees | Ellen Roseman"

    And this one, on why she didn't "go after other companies with customer service problems", such as CT:

    "Why not Canadian Tire or Wal-Mart Blues? | Ellen Roseman"

    More eco-love for worst company of 2010: "Canadian Tire topped the list, however, when it overcharged on the eco fees":

    "How Ellen Roseman saved readers $300,000 in 2010 - Moneyville.ca"

    She seemed to think CT was a good place to borrow from, though.

    Anyway, this is the lady you've bad-mouthed repeatedly, on how she's exploiting consumers for personal gain.

    So, do you hate her but quote her if you think it'll help you out?
