Rip off artists  Canadian Tire MONTREAL MAISONNEUVE, QC  3025 RUE SHERBROOKE EST,  Montreal, QC  H1W 1B2 Phone:514-521-8888  Auto Centre:514-521-8888
 
It is amazing that Canadian tire claims to be professional car mechanics but it does it’s work in an unprofessional, even immoral manner. Imagine this they charged me 230 dollars to pull out 2  fuses for my electric sliding doors.. . this is robbery..
.
It used to be you would take your  car to a mechanic, he would tell you what was wrong with your car  and give you an estimate to have it fixed..  
.
Now days Canadian  Tire have a great  scam where  they first want money upfront, to learn how to fix the car,  money for  their research, next for them to find  all of the car problems and make even false suggestions as to what should be done.. so they can pad the costs next.. this is called porking the barrel.. It is unethical.. You cannot rebuild  an old car into a new car, and replacing all the old parts for new ones is not required..
.
Also  Canadian  Tire advertises a low price for  an  oil change, so I  walk in and tell them I want the oil change, but they  next use here also use a  porking the barrel  approach and do  suggest loads of other work that needs to be done.. and insist on it.. This is called bait and switch.. this too is unethical..
.
My car  alarm also  sounded, the doors unlocked and the automatic sliding door on the passenger’s side opened and closed  and so  I asked them to fix it..
.
Canadian Tire firstly charged me  to learn first how to fix it and but  they still could not find the problem,  all they did next is pulled out 2 fuses.. for $230 dollars? Pulling 2 fuses for that amount is absurd, ludicrous.
.
I bought their car battery last year   with a warranty and  the battery loses it charge continually..     but Canadian tire  next finds false reasons not to warrant it.. they want also 35 dollars to test the battery, and 65 dollars for the labour which now  equals the cost of a new battery almost..They also did   falsely insist that I spend a 1000 dollars first and replace the oil, spark plugs, wiring, ignition system etc  as it might, note might be draining the battery..  other wise they refuse to deal with me..  clearly  they are too dumb to be expert mechanics  as advertised clearly.. they thus  want first hundreds of dollars  for them  learn how to fix my car, Pontiac Montana, so rather  to find all the problems.. and charge me more. **
.
These Canadian Tire  Rip off artists wanted hundreds of dollars to fix my battery problem, turns out that when I went to a decent, honest garage next they traced the problem to a loose bolt on the battery cable and fixed it at no charge to me.. what a contrast to the perverse Canadian Tire approach.
.

** What the Canadian Tire car mechanics expert did not know.. did not deal with..

 .
1 The  sliding door motor relay is being energized. The alarm goes off because it’s not supposed to be energized while the security system is engaged. So you have to look at the relay. There’s either a short, or something has made contact with it. The wiring harness actually goes under the door track on some years. You can disable the door by removing the fuse, for the moment, until you can trace the short. 
 .
 2 or the body control module has been a problem with this model which could also cause the problem?
 .
3 or the Power Sliding Door-The power sliding door may operate incorrectly or not at  all because of the following conditions:
  •  A low voltage or dead battery
  • A disconnected battery
  •  If the instrument panel PSD/fuse 21, LHPSD/ fuse 24 or RHPSD/fuse 25 are removed or blown. See Fuses and Circuit Breakers
  •  or if an intermittent problem, first place  look at are the “finger contacts” in the door where they make contact with the plate in the pillar…..they can get corroded/dirty….. to fix it use steel wool or crocus cloth..
If any of these conditions occur, the power sliding door may need to be reset. If your vehicle has the dual power sliding doors, both doors will have to be reset
.

The actual door problem was both a loose battery connection, and a dirty finger contact with the plate.. a one minute solution.. and Canadian Tire was unable to see or to do this.. instead it removed a fuse for $200.

.

 Immoral, Useless Canadian Tire says that you can write your complaint to them and they will get back to you.. well I have yet to hear from them on all of this too..
.
Head office came back  finally with a useless reply and said I should talk to the  manager.. I had already done that..
 ,
I talked personally next  to the Canadian store manager face to face, he next even lied to me. We all know that most crooks deny they are guilty.. they did not believe as to what had happened..
.
  I am not guilty is what most people say when they are accused of wrong doings.. even convicted felons.   Now the problem about these ostriches in false denial,  about their  related  lying is that they had next started to believe their own  lies, you become now a mental, a basket case.. False Denial as to who they really are now by the people who really do delude themselves too often about their self importance and the positive role they are functioning in is very common, a daily occurrence. We read about it often in the news when some politician or cops, professionals, pastors too is charged with Corruption and they lie and say I am not guilty, the facts are untrue, this is absurd, crazy nuts, as too  often they still cannot deny the reality especially after they are exposed for what they really are too. The find out the hard way that a good name was, is worth more over  any silver or gold acquired too.. a bad reputation is worthless. 
.
They still really cannot face the reality there are things in their life that need serious, drastic changes. These people in denial are the ones who often need professional help for their own short comings, sickness. Their false denial, diversion, distortion does not change the negative reality about their own unacceptable acts.
.
 So these persons to  dwell in self-absorption, fantasy, illusion, where she or he has exaggerated claims to talents, importance, or specialness,  manifesting evidence  of a need for constant admiration from others,  a lack of empathy for all others, persistent in this too,  have rigid personality traits and coping styles, clearly  inflexible, do show a  hypersensitivity to any criticism , defeat or  negative realities thus they rather  are pathological in  denial by the their falsity, contrived replacement of the truths which they still must  face eventually .   These SEVERE PERSONALITY disorders are generally personally ongoing too leading to more impaired social and/or occupational functioning and can make it difficult to pinpoint a clear dividing line between their  pathology and their so called normality. Most of these people with their personality disorders may not perceive that there is anything wrong with their behavior and thus they are not motivated to change it. It is important to note that these  personality disorders are considered to have their onset in late adolescence or early adulthood and they alone are responsible for it too.  
.

 These People in the state of false denials, clearly also who lie often, they do now also tend to have severe personal, mental disorders next even cause one tends to eventually believe next ones own lies as being the truth, and they can no no longer differentiate their own lies from reality, the truth. By their false denials Who is fooling whom? You cannot fool all the people all the time and now matter how smart you are there is still someone more wiser who can see the truth still too..

 .
Denial, it is very  common when many an individual, even amongst so called professionals, even in pastors now included,  are openly confronted with their own wrong doings, that they resort to a false denial. When confronted with the truth the denier they  often respond with a similar personal counter attack remark as   ”you are crazy”.  “I reject your reality… and substitute my own.”  Their false denial, diversion, distortion does not change the negative reality about themselves still though.  Sadly it is a negative natural human tendency to devolve into denial.”    It’s not just a moral compass that’s lacking, but the ability to honest, or to stand apart. Denial often comes out of a false pride, a fear of being openly exposed as being wrong. Denial is a false convenient escape, excuse for inaction  for persons now  facing a situation that requires a decision or action that conflicts with his or her established past policy. Denial too often can be  further disastrous upon themselves and others.. for denial is not seeing data at all or seeing it and coming to an erroneous conclusion within oneself. One’s false denial is often based on a false assumption  of one’s past great success and often precedes their own severe personal failure next due to a personal disconnect with real life. Illustrated fully by the story of the Emperor with new clothes.
 .
Denial (also called abnegation) is a defense mechanism postulated by Sigmund Freud, in which a person is faced with a fact that is too uncomfortable to accept and rejects it instead, insisting that it is not true despite what may be overwhelming evidence, a mechanism of the immature mind that conflicts with the ability to learn from and cope with reality. The subject may now deny the reality of the unpleasant fact altogether (simple denial), admit the fact but deny its seriousness (minimization) or admit both the fact and seriousness but deny responsibility (transference). The concept of denial is particularly related to the denial of one’s addiction to alcohol for example, or to one slandering others, abusing them stealing, lying.. their denial or their  minimization of their own wrong doings is the  essential part of what enables them next to   continue his or her behavior in the face of evidence that, to an outsider, that is   overwhelming.   “The American Heart Association cites denial as a principal reason that treatment of a heart attack is delayed. Because the symptoms are so varied, and often have other potential explanations, the opportunity exists for the patient to deny the emergency, often with fatal consequences. It is common for patients to delay mammograms or other tests because of a fear of cancer, even though this is clearly maladaptive.”
.

Types of Denial include now the Denial of fact: This form of denial is where someone avoids a fact by lying. This lying can take the form of an outright falsehood (commission), leaving out certain details in order to tailor a story (omission), This form of denial involves avoiding personal responsibility by blaming, minimizing or justifying.   Denial of responsibilityDenial of impact: avoiding thinking about or understanding the harms their behavior have caused to themselves or others.  Denial of awareness: they do not admit any previous awareness of the negative reality.  Denial of cycle: Denial of cycle is where a person avoids looking at their decisions leading up to an event or does not consider their pattern of decision making and how harmful behavior is repeated. Denial of denial:  This latter form of denial typically overlaps with all of the other forms of denial, but involves more self-delusion. People in a false denial are really nuts, delusional..

.

There are tools and practices that we can implement to overcome the psychological trap of denial. Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too.

DUCT CLEANING.. 3431 MOUNT ROYAL MONTREAL H1X3H22

Now like I said this is your  warning..  you can do anything you want.. but I too next  thus also will post your name  the name of your firm on internet also for the whole world to see how you do harass me falsely.. and I will rightfully tell them all too how you tried to blackmail me  to get your deserved  payments…  but  I have no responsibility in the matter so as requested do please  stop contacting me.. Contact the guilty party, Contact your lawyers, go to court.. no more emails or phone calls or any threats to me..
I have an Bachelor of engineering degree, Concordia University , Montreal 1968, and I had worked as a ReMax Realtor.  AS A PAST CONTRACT MANAGER, PROFESSIONAL ENGINEER, I AM VERY FAMILIAR WITH  QUEBEC CONTRACT LAWS, AND CONSUMER RIGHTS and I have also written about it..  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/04/27/basic-contract-law/ .
I have dealt successfully with major corporations already in such matters too..
 
Be advised that I dispute the alleged debt to me and I rather rightfully do suggest you take the matter to court with  the guilty party, which is not me. Pursuant to the Collection Agencies Act, R.R.O. 1990, REGULATION 74, you must immediately cease and desist from ALL contact and attempt to contact me,  You clearly have made an error in judgment that I do work for you, have to obey you, have to deal with you and you do not, however, have the right to break the laws, threaten or harass me in your attempts to get your  due invoice paid. I AM VERY FAMILIAR WITH   CONTRACT LAWS, AND CONSUMER RIGHTS . You cannot continue to call me  or send your letters, emails   to me as I am   not the person you should be dealing with for your payment. And the use  of hounding harassment, intimidation and fear mongering,  bullying’s, tricks,   scare tactics,  or harassing  to try to force anyone  to pay the debt is still illegal..  Note harassment is “engaging in vexatious conduct and comment that is known or ought reasonably to be known to be unwelcome.” Human Rights Code, R.S.O. 1990  Canadian laws, such as the Collection Agencies Act, do still have standards and limitations that all  collection agents, firms  must follow when dealing with anyone .  I do not have to deal with you , unless ordered to do so by a court and still there is no guarantee that you  will win if you  sue me and getting me  to court is costly and could take   years. In fact you cannot insist on anything! If I  do  feel I AM   being harassed  I CAN call and file a complaint with the police, also now contact the internet firm, the   telephone company about the harassment. As well, I can  complain also to the the Consumer Protection Branch of the Ministry of Consumer Services. I personally do not owe you any money. By Canadian  laws, you are supposed to immediately stop calling me, and not contact you at all when I have  send you a letter disputing the debt and I suggest that you  take me to court or rather the guilty party which is not me.. Your abuse of the laws may also net you  not just bad publicity but a large fine and even loss of your  operating license, and give me  evidence to contact the Police or to expose you for your false harassment.  “The laws are in place for a reason,”  “They are to protect citizens, consumers from abusive practices.” In addition all  further  threats   are also illegal and  are also banned under the law if you have been told to  go to court.. Do see Quebec-Les comptes en souffrances  http://www.opc.gouv.qc.ca/consommateur/bien-service/credit-recouvrement-finance/agence-recouvrement/
 
Also the Court has slammed Bell TV for ‘reprehensible’ violation of customer’s privacy rights The Federal Court of Canada has awarded a Nova Scotia man $21,000 in damages after a judge ruled Bell TV had violated his privacy rights by checking his credit history without his permission, Judge Michael Phelan said Bell TV’s conduct was “reprehensible.” Bell conducted an unauthorized credit check that hurt his credit score. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/court-slams-bell-tv-for-reprehensible-violation-of-customers-privacy-rights/article15212772/

Keri Takefman I have been told that you have even recently refused to provide an invoice or a receipt for the work performed but you still want to be paid for the duct work.. Are you committing tax evasions?

cracked-tooth-
“I had made a serious mistake.. as I had posted on the net that I had a great dentist Dr. Nadia Michael at LE DENTISTE in Ville La Salle and now she has no time to even see me?

I had been going to this my favorite Dentist at least the last decade..   Dr Nadia Michel   -Academic: Doctor of Dental Medecine , Graduated from:  Université Laval ,  Experience: General practitioner since 1998 ,   Member of l´Ordre des dentistes du Québec ,of the Association des chirurgiens dentistes du Québec and of the Société dentaire de la Vallée du Richelieu.
.
Recently they LE DENTISTE in Ville La Salle  had expanded in size, doubled in fact, and there was now evidently even  more competition  amongst the associate staff.   
.
Now I had just lost a filling in one of my teeth and so I called and asked to make an appointment with my regular, favorite dentist. I was next told that she had gone for a whole Month’s vacation, and they suggested another dentist 2  days later.
.
Turns out this was now even a big  lie, as my regular dentist was not on vacation for a month, a fact I had easily discovered when I got to the dentist office..
.
It seems the appointment receptionist that day was rather falsely sheep stealing, passing on client’s to her own favorite dentist unknowingly  behind my own old dentist  Dr Nadia Michael’s  back. 
.
The new replacement dentist next was even  rude, clearly a  con artist. The replacement dentist she  immediately  told me that she could not provide me her full  services that day, she would have to provide a temporary filling, and I had to take it or leave it, and she instead I had also to agree to her  whole tooth treatment before she even would install the temp  filling.  So I agreed. She installed the temporary filling which even next fell out a few hours later anyway..
.
The replacement dentist  next gave me a large estimate for the costs of fixing that one tooth.  I told her I would wait for my old own regular dentist to come back from vacation and she would do it for me .
But that is when I found out my own dentist had really not been on Vacation
.
So I complained even there to the present receptionist staff about how I had been treated, about  all this deception, ruse, bad service, bad dental treatment, very , immoral.
.
and I awaited an appointment next  with my good dentist who is supposedly going to call me back? but the other receptions still did claim she is booked now for the next 2 months.
.
So what is the real truth here too now?
.  
Now this is not the first time in my life had encountered an  unscrupulous dentist, at least 5 times before this in 2 different provinces even? . And how often does it go on  now too with others?
.
Ps The replacement filling that I had paid for had anyway shortly had also fallen out.. not that is really bad service too. http://www.ledentiste.com/eng/ “
.
I finally a few days later got a call from my great  dentist  Dr. Nadia Michael who made an appointment to fix my filling ASAP. She  Dr. Nadia Michael was unaware of what was happening as she insists that her old customers can always contact her for emergency services and she fixed the filling at 1/10 of the price quoted to me before by the bad new dentist. Now that is decent service..
.
Now I wish my new Optometrist was  just as great    https://postedat.wordpress.com/2013/06/20/le-lunetier-3189-rue-masson-montreal-quebec-h1y-1y2-telephone-514-522-3680/ they seem only interest in  making a buck quickly to.

Vous n’en croirez pas vos yeux,, ou Le Lunetier

“MY VERY GOOD AND VERY BAD EYE AND GLASSES SERVICES from  LE LUNETIER  http://www.lelunetier.com;

LE LUNETIER   Montréal Succursale Lasalle  Address     8361 boul. Newman, Lasalle H8N1Y4 Telephone(514) 365-6507  lasalle@lelunetier.com

I HAD BEEN VERY HAPPY WITH  THE PERSONAL SERVICES I HAD RECEIVED FOR OVER A DECADE IN LASALLE AND  I NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS AT ALL DURING THIS TIME TOO. A GREAT MANAGER-OWNER  HIMSELF WAS THE MAIN REASON BUT I NEXT WAS FORCED TO MOVE TO   NOW AS TO THE LOOK AFTER MY MOTHER NEXT

THE LE LUNETIER  3189, rue Masson, Montréal, Québec H1Y 1Y2 Telephone: (514) 522-3680 -Email: masson@lelunetier.com

NEXT THEY  HAD SUGGESTED NEW GLASSES   FOR ME  AND AFTER I TOOK THEIR SUGGESTIONS AND BOUGHT THEIR NEW GLASSES BUT ONE PAIR, THE MAIN ONES,  NEXT THEY  DID NOT WORK FOR ME I COULD NOT SEE CLEARLY.. MY OLD GLASSES FROM  LE LUNETIER LA SALLE WERE EVEN STILL BETTER .. THE OTHER 2 PAIRS WERE ALRIGHT.

.

NOW THESE SAME PEOPLE CLEARLY LIE, SPEND MONEY ON ADVERTINGS AS TO WHAT GOOD, PROFESSIONALS SERVICES THAY PROBIDE, BUT IN REALITY THEY ARE STILL SELF SERVING, PROVIDE A BAD SERVICESA S TO THE CUSTOMERS.. AS I FOUND OUT FIRSTHAND, LIKELEY EXPLAINS WHY THEY HAD TO MOVE FROM THEIR OLD LOCATOIN, AND START OVER AGAIN.

.

WHEN I WENT BACK  TO THE ROSEMOUNT EYE GLASSES STORE THE COORDINATOR SAID SHE WOULD TRY TO FIX THE GLASSES AND SHE WENT TO THE BACK ROOM WITH THE GLASSES AND CAME BACK A HALF OF AN HOUR LATER.. WHEN I TRIED    THE GLASSES THERE, THERE  WAS NO IMPROVEMENT. SO I ASKED HER WHAT SHE HAD DONE FOR HALF AN HOUR? SHE SAID SHE HAD CLEANED THE LENSES?

liars 2

HOW REALLY ABSURD NOW.. WHAT A WASTE OF MY TIME AND A USELESS WHITEWASH APPROACH. THIS  IS WHAT THEY CALL GOOD SERVICE? CUSTOMER SATISFACTION

EVEN THOUGH LE LUNETIER  IN ROSEMOUNT THEY HAD ADVERTISED OPENLY THAT THEY HAD THE BEST EYE TESTING SYSTEM. THAT WAS NOT SO WITH ME.  I NEXT WAITED FOR A 6 MONTH ADJUSTMENT PERIOD AND THEY STILL DID NOT WORK PROPERLY.

THE SAME ROSEMOUNT OPTOMETRIST NEXT HAD SAID THERE NOTHING HE COULD DO FOR ME BETTER.. AND THEY ALL REFUSED TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT WRONGFULLY TOO THEY ARE CLEARLY NOW GUILTY OF FALSE MISLEADING ADVERTING. WELL I WON’T ACCEPT THAT.

I ON MY OWN HAD OFFERED TO PAY 50% OF THE PRICE OF THE NEW GLASS REPLACEMENT AND THEY HAD FALSELY REFUSED IT TOO.

As I had expected I am not the only one who recently got the very bad service from the very same Optometrist in Rosemount. One of my neighbors today said that her daughter recently paid 300 dollars  for her glasses, that now also were also totally inadequate. Imagine the arrogance of some persons in Rosemount that thing they can stay profitably in business by providing poor, incompetent services. They are clearly going to put themselves out of business if they falsely continue to operate this way.

I HAD ALSO CONTACTED THE LAVAL HEADQUARTERS TEL 450-663-1684 AND  THEY AHD PROMISED TO GET   BACK TO ME ABOUT MY BAD EYE AND BAD GLASSES SERVICES IN ROSEMOUNT BUT NO ONE DID SO FAR.

THEY WERE QUICK TO TAKE MY MONEY BUT NOT AT ALL TO PROVIDE  ME  A GOOD AFTER SERVICE.  IN SPITE OF THE MONEY THEY LE LUNETIER SPEND, WILL SPEND HAVE TO NOW SPEND ON ADVERTISEMENTS CLEARLY IN ROSEMOUNT THERE IS NOW STILL  NO GOOD SERVICE OR REAL GOOD WILL TOWARDS ME A CUSTOMER, AND UNDENIABLY SO..  AND  UNDENIABLY SAD..

SO  THEY DO NOW EVEN DESERVE THE BAD PUBLICITY  ON THE NET “

### NEXT THEY ARE WILLING TO GIVE ME AN EXCHANGE  REFUND ON THE BAD GLASSES BUT WERE UNWILLING TO PROVIDE ME WITH A DECENT PAIR.. WOW! I GUESS THEY WANT TO TAKE AWAY THE EVIDENCE FROM ME ABOUT THEIR POOR SERVICE

.

By the way the next Optometrist I visited refused to prescribe any eye glasses rather she insisted I that I get a cataract operation on both eyes and so I next  got it, and now I  need no eye glasses at all to see or to read.
