It is ridiculous bordering on insane that the car manufacturers are preventing Canadians from buy (Canadian made no less) vehicles in the US.
If I were in the market to buy a car right now and was being prevented from savings thousands upon thousands of dollars, I’d be beyond livid. I’d be looking at filing a class action suit. Surely there’d be some lawyer out there willing to take the case on.
For which I ribbed him gently here:
Apparently, one of those pro-capitalism, less government regulation, unfettered free market conservatives is not so happy with how some corporations choose to do business, and is rather keen on (gasp! horrors!) someone stepping in and doing a little consumer protection on his behalf.
At which point BB wants everyone to know how thoroughly out-to-lunch I am:
As usual CC has got it wrong. He seems to think I’m meaning the government should somehow enter the fray. What I mean is that consumers should launch a class action suit against the car manufacturers. :) Capitalism at its finest in this decadent age! What other way could I get possibly make a shit load of $$$ without doing anything? :) The government doesn’t enter into this at all.
Um ... of course. BB wants the legal system to take care of it, so that the government doesn't need to get involved.
No, there's no punchline. That was the punchline.
