Just yapping away.

This poor blog has really been put on the shelf. I sort of expected it would as life moved on. I was thinking today that Emilio and I have only been in Toronto for a little more than 2 years and so much has happened in our lives. So much so that precious non working time is not a big part of our lives. Since opening this store we have witnessed the worst in greed and blatant theft from some who we deal with and frankly I am sick of it. It's a shame so many people are this way. It's really soured me a bit. You work 7 days a week and asshats are stealing from you.

I am still politically active in immigration reform in the US and also keeping up on the Conservatives destruction of fair immigration practices here in Canada. I will never understand their complete lack of empathy for fellow human beings. Now they are reforming refugee claims, which means they will do what they did with non refugee immigrations, mass denials and no comprehensive review of each case. I am also angry at the Liberals and NDP for not combining forces for a coalition and stopping Canada from the devastation we see from the Harper government. Party loyalty is stupid, putting party before the nation is even dumber. We have both here just as much as we see in the US.

Now that the weather is nicer we enter busy season and we know this year will be better than last, we just need to keep the thieves out of our pockets so we can enjoy some rewards from all this hard labour. Here's hoping!

BBB Better Business Bureau- Complete Scam and Useless- Easy Electric Inc.

Last year I reported Restaurant Liquidators aka London Major Food Inc. I dedided the bad electrician we hired last year should at least have something on their record for not providing any quote after we paid them $371.

So I decided to give BBB another chance. Was I ever wrong!
See below. The BBB is paid by businesses, it is not a government entity nor a non profit, it is an incorporation for profit. In other words useless in my opinion.

I also contacted them after my court win to see if they would help protect consumers against Restaurant Liquidators. They weren't interested in protecting the public at all.

Complaint ID#: 1205553
Business Name: Easy Electric Inc
