Update: Apparently our rural overlords can spot stunned sometimes when they see it.An unfortunate tale of a local man whose US bought car is now barred from the Canadian road. The Federal government's position is explained in the Whig today:
Charette said the standard has been in the works for a long time and has only recently resulted in the removal of vehicles from the admissibility list. He said auto manufacturers only recently advised which vehicles could be adapted to meet Canadian federal standards. Charette said the government recognizes the predicament of car buyers and is reviewing the situation. "Solutions are now being discussed with stakeholders and we hope to announce that shortly," he said. Charette was unable to offer an approximate time frame.The odd thing is that the failure of the car in question relates to the anti-theft system. Not the brakes, not the steering system or any other aspect of the car that relates to public safety from the operation of the car. Plus your betters have decided an after-market refit is not acceptable either.
Is this what you want from your government regulators? And what do you bet you aren't considered a "stakeholder"?
