Biggest Black Friday discounts on new cars in Canada

Men Canada Goose Banff Parka Brown Sale Ireland

Mazda? Black Friday money is in play on outgoing 2014 models. Hyundai? Again, up to $1,000 in extra savings above and beyond the already in place discounts and the extra money goes away after Dec. 1. Even Mercedes Benz Canada is offering a one per cent rate reduction through Nov. 29.

Not all the car companies in Canada are touting Black Friday deals, but quite a few are. Ford of Canada, for instance has up to an additional $750 in Black Friday discounts in place until Dec. 1. Consumers can combine that cash with up to $9,000 more in incentives, loyalty or conquest bonuses and zero per cent financing for up to 72 months.

Hyundai, meantime, has a total of $3,000 in factory money in play, $1,000 of which is that Black Friday deal. And so on.

In real terms, a 2014 Ford Focus SE sedan has four stackable or combinable offers on the table, together which come to $2,750 in total discounts. Plus, most of the cash offers can be had with zero per cent financing or leasing.

The offers in Canada are at least in part an effort to blunt any potential cross border shopping on the day after Thanksgiving. They also give the manufacturers and their deals something new to tout in a marketplace frothy with incentive offers. Calculations based on Ontario customers. Please note that Men Canada Goose Banff Parka Brown Sale Ireland while the information above is accurate at the time of publication, incentives are given at the discretion of individual dealers, and may be changed or discontinued at any time. Where noted, "dealer discounts" are negotiated with the customer on a case by case basis. Unhaggle Savings are actual discounts received by Unhaggle customers.

General Motors of Canada also has Black Friday discounts of up to $1,000, in addition to many other sales sweeteners. Like Ford, the GM Black Friday bonus money comes off the table after Dec. 1.

Quebec was expected to see the lightest Boxing Day shopping, with just 36 per cent of respondents saying they planned to take part in the annual shopping extravaganza.

"There wasn't as many good deals as I thought there'd be. Retailers do Canada Goose Cheap Hybridge Lite Jacket Ireland sales the whole year round," he said.

Future Shop spokesman Elliott Chun said most shoppers ducking into the electronics chain on its busiest day of the year are looking to fulfil their own desires.

A crowd of bargain hunters waited for hours outside a big box retail store in frigid temperatures.

"The other day we came in, walked around, saw what we wanted and then waited for the deals," explained her sister, Caitlin Robertson, 24.

The survey was conducted between Oct. 11 and 16. and the results are considered accurate plus or minus 3.1 per cent, 19 times out of 20.

A new survey commissioned by the Bank of Montreal suggests Canadians continue to embrace the Boxing Day tradition this year.

It was a similar scene in Vancouver, where shoppers bustling through one of the city's most popular downtown shopping streets paid little attention to the light mist of rain coming down on their packages.

Small queues formed outside several Granville Street clothing stores, and a steady stream of flatscreen TVs were wheeled out of a big box electronics store and loaded into taxis.

"Even though Black Friday may have been a bit more intense, a bit crazy, people are still getting good sales," Courtice said while clutching a 32 inch flat screen TV.

Fabiola Ruiz, 31, split the waiting duties with her mother and brought along her eight year old daughter for company as well.

The survey suggested Alberta would see the most transactions Wednesday, with 76 per cent of respondents saying they planned to take advantage of Boxing Day bargains. Atlantic Canada was next at 72 per cent, followed by Ontario at 69 per cent.

One in five, or 22 per cent, said they planned to shop for themselves, while 34 per cent said they would buy items for both themselves and others.

"We're seeing customers coming in with their gift cards, with their Christmas cash and they're starting to spend it on themselves," he said, adding the average transaction on Boxing Day tops $500.

TORONTO Wallets were flung open and registers rang out Wednesday as a number of Canadians shook off holiday fatigue and flocked to stores for Boxing Day bargains.

Despite the survey's findings regarding Quebec, several major electronic and clothing stores in downtown Montreal drew big lines on Wednesday.

Chun said Black Friday isn't sapping the enthusiasm of shoppers, noting that hundreds lined up early at Future Shop stores across the country, some arriving the night before to camp out for a prime spot in line.

The survey also found that men were more likely than women to take advantage of Boxing Day sales at a rate of 66 per cent versus 58 per cent.

"You know what to expect and it's just going to be crowded and crazy and you have to know what you want and get in and get out. We went scouting before," said Gillian Robertson, 20.

The Pollara survey of 1,000 Canadians found that roughly six in 10 respondents planned to shop on one of the busiest business days of the year for retailers.

Howard Ma, however, who used to live in Vancouver but now returns from his home abroad to visit family each year, said he is starting to notice a downward trend.

In Toronto, eager shoppers lined up in sub zero temperatures outside downtown stores while others scoured the Eaton Centre mall for savings. lift to Best Buy, braving the morning cold to stand in line with dozens of people an hour before the store opened its doors.

"It's very cold, but it's worth it," she said, sipping coffee to keep warm. "We're looking for deals for the whole family."

The teen said he set his sights on a deeply discounted TV, the nearly half off sale price deemed worth the pre dawn wake up call and "mind blowing" lineup.

Regardless, he expects he'll be back again next year.

The waterfront trail is a wonderful place for the public to walk, roller blade or whatever. My daughter, who lives in Toronto, has joined me in the summer months to walk from Princess Point to Bayfront Park. She has said people in Toronto would give anything for something like it.

Having said that, the Waterfront Trust has approached expansion with dictatorial powers, encroaching on private property such as the West Harbour marinas and boat clubs, Leander and the Royal Hamilton Yacht Club, without enough thought to security for these people, who are now vulnerable to the same vandalism that was suffered by the boat owners at LaSalle Park Marina.

And now the Trust is proposing grandiose plans to construct huge condos at a cost to taxpayers of $80 million plus. As always, costs will likely end up double the original projection.

Avoid Waterfront Trust 'mess'

Before our vacant headed councillors get us into this mess, they should look after getting the water treatment plants in perfect order so residents don't have to put up with the mess storm after storm. Also, quit bellyaching about funds from the federal government when you can find this kind of money to play around with. It might clear some of the fog out of their heads.

Where do these pipe dreams come from? Have they not seen the derelict apartment buildings at the foot of John Street North? Persuade a developer to buy those, clean them up and reinvent them into lovely condos. They would have a great view Men Canada Goose Expedition Navy Outlet Ireland of the harbour.

"I tell [people] that the ducks coming our way each fall get shot at and called to in every state between here and Canada and are real educated by the time we see them, so you have to be good to call them in," Crawford said.

"It all begins with duck hunting," Crawford assured.

"I blew on that call for five minutes and said that's it, it's dead on," Crawford interjected. "I told Wayne [Betts] that the duck calling god must have walked through that one withhim because it was dead a on!"

Noting that Arkansas callers have won the world championship more often than not during the competition's 70 year history, he said he knows why the state's callers were so good.

The last activity comes first and foremost at a small backyard workshop in Rogers where a few men regularly gather on Wednesday nights during the long offseason. On those nights, the little shop can be said to be the duck calling capital of Northwest Arkansas.

Many competition callers, he noted, prefer the versatility of the single reed call and are willing to put in the time it takes to become comfortable with it.

"I make a one piece insert with either a double reed or single reed," Betts said. "The double reed makes it easier to make a realistic sound of the hen mallard, while the single reed is more versatile, but takes more skill."

"Nowadays, I make five different calls an open water call, a timber call, a hybrid timber call, a competition call and a Canada goose call," Betts said, indicating the various models on display in his shop.

While the external shape of the calls is designed to fit comfortably in a caller's hand and against his mouth, it's the interior reed design that is key to producing the seductive sounds of the mallard hen so crucial to success in the field or on the stage of a callingcontest.

At the time of the 2000 contest, Crawford already was a legend in duck calling as a three time winner of the world championship held annually in Stuttgart.

Competing the night before, he won the Chick Majors contest hosted by a former world champion and calling legend. Then, on his birthday, he started the day by winning the Arkansas State Championship and followed up that night by winning the world championship.

Demonstrating his calling expertise, he cupped his hand to his mouth and began going through a repertoire of calls, such as the Hail Call and theComeback Call.

"Now that's really a lost art," he said, adding that a caller named Herman Callioutte of Greenville, Miss., had once won the world championship long ago by mouth calling.

One of Betts' calls was recently used to win the Oklahoma State Duck calling Championship, but his breakthrough came when Crawford asked him to make a call for the 2000 Champion of Champions calling contest limited to former world champions and held every five years in Stuttgart.

Within the warm confines of his shop on a cold, snowy nightlast week, Betts took time for a show and tell regarding the history of his calls and how they are made. "I don't make any molded calls; I hand turn each one on a lathe according to designs that took me years to refine," the middle aged craftsman said. "Most call makers today have never turned a call themselves. With less than a half dozen hand makers left in the country, it's kind of getting to be a lost art."

Betts made and tuned the call and shipped it to Crawford.

His calls typically start out as blocks of acrylic or cocobola wood that are placed on a lathe and sculpted with sharp tools to create the barrels and inserts. Showing how it was done, he made it look easy.

The level of expertise and experience is genuinely world class when Trey Crawford and Wayne Betts of Rogers get together with young duckcalling proteges like Jeff Morrison of Springdale and Brock Bertrand of Fayetteville, as well as other young callers who show up from time to time.

On his 17th birthday in 1976, Crawford was in Stuttgart going up against the best callers in the world.

Growing up near Newport in northeast Arkansas, Crawford got an unusually early start in duck hunting and call ing competition in a family immersed in everything ducks.

After winning the title in 1976, 1986 and 1993 and the Champion of Champions in 2000, the burly, middle aged caller became the only person to ever achieve the pinnacle of calling in four straight decades.

"Robertson came up to us after we won and said, 'You boys sound like you might have killed a few ducks in your time,'" Crawford recalled.

The calling sounded great even before Crawford pulled his hand away from his mouth and grinned to show me he had no call in his hand and had been mouth calling alone.

Betts and Crawford are sensitive to the contention that competition calling bears little relation to calling ducks during actual hunts.

"It was a heckuva birthday," Crawford said.

Crawford went on to win the 2000 Champions of Champions competition, which marked the beginning of a close friendship with Betts that has only grown closer since Crawford recently moved to Rogers and became manager of the Whole Hog Cafe in Bentonville.

For starters, the shop is home to Betts Championship Duck Calls, where Betts has been making calls since 1994. The word "championship" associated with the name of the calls is not hype one Cheap Women Canada Goose Victoria Parka Green Ireland of Betts' calls was once used to win the World Duck Calling Championship in Stuttgart, and others are used regularly by top competitors in calling contests around the country.

He added that one of the most memorable compliments he's received during his callingcareer came after he and Betts had won the World Team Meat Calling Contest held in Pocahontas and judged by Phil Robertson, a famed caller known as the "Duck Commander."

"I started duck hunting when I was 5 years old and entered my first [calling] contest in 1969 when I was 10 years old; that was the year I won the Jackson County Junior Duck Calling Championship," Crawford said. "On the same day, my father won the Northeast Arkansas Regional Open and my brother won the Jackson County Senior Division."

Conducting the event in February gives scientists a remarkable snapshot of wild bird populations throughout North America. Among other things, those data provide information about winter survival and where many species are located prior to the spring migrations that will commence in the coming weeks.

One such diversion would be the 2012 Great Backyard Bird Count that will take place from Friday, Feb. 15, through Monday, Feb. 18. This year marks the 16th installment of this annual volunteer event, which is a joint effort of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society. Birders of every skill level can participate in this important citizen science project either as individuals or as a group even if you are not able to identify every bird you see. How much time spent counting is flexible and left to the discretion of each individual participant.

During the 2012 event, bird enthusiasts from every state and Canadian province submitted more than 104,000 checklists that reported sightings of 17.4 million birds, comprising more than 600 different species.

I'm not sure how that silly bit folklore started or why it has persisted into more enlightened times, other than it might be a testament to how long and boring the winters were in northcentral Pennsylvania. Rather than pretend some captive rodent can predict weather patterns, I much prefer to cope with the midwinter blues by engaging in something more grounded in reality.

Big day for bird loves is coming up

"We've taken Buy Women Canada Goose Resolute Parka Red Ireland substantial steps on these pages to acquaint more Pennsylvanians with the state's wild birds and the agency's role in bird conservation, both within the Commonwealth's borders and internationally," Dan Brauning, supervisor of the Game Commission's Wildlife Diversity Division, said. "This content will help more people see the value of wild birds, and get them closer to birds. It also offers ways to get involved in bird conservation and to make your property safer and more attractive to birds."

In Pennsylvania, the northern cardinal, mourning dove, dark eyed junco, tufted titmouse and downy woodpecker were the five species most often sighted during the 2012 GBBC, while the five most numerous species reported were snow goose, Canada goose, European starling, common grackle and red winged blackbird.

To keep the exercise manageable, counting every individual bird you see is not required, just the most individuals of a species that are sighted at one time during a counting session.

Many casual birdwatchers I talk with are often surprised to learn that here in Pennsylvania the Pennsylvania Game Commission is the agency responsible for the management of all species of wild birds not just ducks, turkeys, grouse and other game birds.

To participate in the event, you can observe birds for as little as 15 minutes on a single day during the event or spend as much time counting as you want over several days. You may also count birds in several different places, from your backyard feeder to woodlands, fields or parks anywhere wild birds are found.

Almost anything to do with the history and traditions of Pennsylvania interests me greatly, but Groundhog Day is one notable exception to that fascination.

The group's website provides a wealth of information and online resources about the event and birding in general. In addition to all the instructions about participating in it, you can download a regional bird checklist, which lists all the birds that are likely in this area during February. There are even educational materials available for teachers who might be interested in making participation in the GBBC a class science project.

One of the most worthwhile aspects of the project is it offers anyone who enjoys wild birds the opportunity to provide researchers with important information about bird distribution and populations.

Bell says service charges billed in advance are not refunded when you cancel your agreement. This means you continue paying until the end of the billing period, despite getting no service.

That made sense to me. Who wants to be billed by two phone suppliers Buy Men Canada Goose Chateau Parka Tan Online for overlapping days in the monthly billing cycle?

Videotron, owned by Quebecor Media, has asked the CRTC to stop Bell from billing customers after they cancel. The application will be heard later this year.

Stephen Sayers had a different experience with Bell Mobility, which charged him for 12 days of service after he had ported two phone lines to Cityfone.

Buy Men Canada Goose Chateau Parka Tan Online

Responding to Maker, Laszlo said Bell complied with the wireless code, which prohibits 30 day cancellation notices. "But as CRTC staff have said, the intention of the code is not to ensure that a customer receives a prorated refund for prepaid services."

My July invoice from Rogers said, "If you cancelled a service since your last bill, you'll see we credited your account for the days you didn't use the service last month."

"I cancelled my contract Oct. 30, yet was billed until Nov. 11," Sayers said. "When the code says a contract expires on the day I call to cancel, doesn't the contract expire?"

The Commissioner for Complaints for Telecommunications Services, a member funded mediator, deals with customer issues arising from the wireless code. What does it think of Bell's response?

In materials posted online, Telus supports Bell's position. It says neither the wireless code nor subsequent CRTC decisions require providers to issue refunds for a partial month when they bill in advance.

"A pernicious, persistent and prohibited cash grab," say the Consumers Association of Canada and the Public Interest Advocacy Centre, two groups that support Videotron's position.

Why pernicious? Most people learn of the practice only after they switch to a new provider and find charges from the old provider billed to their credit card or debited from their bank account.

Yes, the contract does expire as soon as you cancel. But your provider can still charge you for the remaining days in your monthly billing cycle.

"We explained our policy to Mr. Sayers, referred him to the applicable sections of the terms of service and, as a goodwill gesture, refunded the amount in question ($25)," spokesman Jason Laszlo said.

"Our analysis would likely be that Bell did not have the right to charge Mr. Sayers for the period from Oct. 30 to Nov. 11," said CCTS commissioner Howard Maker.

It undermines competitive forces to bill consumers for a service they have terminated, Leger said. By adding a cost to switching, this practice can create a disincentive to consider other options in the future.

I think the CRTC was not clear enough about its intentions in getting rid of the 30 day notice provision first in wireless contracts and later in telephone, Internet and TV contracts.

Bell customer charged after cellphone contract ends

"Notwithstanding the suggestion in Mr. Laszlo's email that Bell can charge this fee because its terms of service say that it can, the wireless code prevails over the provider's terms of service."

"At this point, the consumer faces the daunting task of pursuing compensation from a service provider with which the consumer may no longer have any business relationship," said the two groups' counsel, Jean Francois Leger, in a letter to the CRTC.

The CRTC wireless code, which took effect December 2013, requires mobile providers to end a contract as soon as customers notify them of their intent to leave.
