I sorted through the hundreds of warning against buying a bicycle from Canadian Tire, posted during the first 24 hours of the thread.
I've come up with a couple of general categories.
First, I'm going to list comments that said, "Don't buy a bicycle from Canadian Tire", without offering any specific reasons.
Next, I'm going to give the ones where an explanation was offered.
Finally, I'm going to post specific horror stories from Canadian Tire's very own Facebook page. If these show up after the first 24 hours, I'll try and keep grabbing them, before CT has a chance to delete them (they seem to be falling behind on their "Customer Service", LOL!)
