Well, it’s almost the summer – and that means that more people may be approaching our doors, asking us to purchase products or services.

What did the interest start adding up and what was I responsible for?
As this is the time of year that people begin working on their new year’s resolutions, we thought it would be useful to provide some more information around gym membership contracts.

Our Inquiry team often receives calls from consumers who have just purchased a car from a BC dealership. The most common question we are asked is whether or not they can return the car if they are not satisfied.
