Oakville Council passed a motion calling on the Province of Ontario to place a ban on door-to-door sales in the home services sector.
The motion specifically urges the provincial government to ban the sale or lease of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment, water heaters, water treatment and filtration systems, and other related home energy products and services by door-to-door sales agents.
Mayor Rob Burton said, “Despite efforts from the provincial government to curb misleading and aggressive sales tactics at the door, Oakville homeowners still experience it far too regularly”.
“Calling on the Province to ban door-to-door sales in the home services sector is the right thing to do for residents in Oakville and all municipalities.”
With today’s technology we have the world at our finger tips.
We don’t need anyone knocking on our door.
It only opens the opportunity for fraud.
If someone needs a product or service, they can find it easily enough.
For the same reasons, we don’t need anyone calling us either.
Ban it all!!
In the day of ‘user friendly’ and ‘choice’ its archaic marketing that went out of date with horse drawn milk delivery.

Does religion represent all? Is it becoming less relevant (or more) in today’s world?
Within 24 hours of voting to leave the European Union, millions in the U.K. had signed a petition asking the government for another, in hope of reversing the decision.
Good luck with that….
Younger UK’ers will suffer the most as they now have 27 less countries to find employment in due to this decision.
That along with a plunging economy, and pound, leave little hope for the future of this already depressed part of the world.
With less than 2% of the vote their world has unraveled, and their future uncertain.
This is what happens when you hold a referendum that is often promised by crafty politicians to get elected.
People vote with passion, anger and little knowledge or common sense, in judging the gravity of their situation.
Simply put, the average person is not qualified to make such a decision, which is why we elect leaders.
I blame this on politicians who have ignored the public’s pleas for change, and then throw the tough decisions on the back of the electorate, when leaders do not have the courage to do the right thing.

Can UK and EU kiss and make up after Brexit divorce?
What is the purpose of high school sports? To win, or teach life lessons?
St. Thomas More Catholic Secondary School senior boys’ soccer team was playing Bishop Tonnos when a dusk up ensues and both goalies are red carded which entails a one game suspension.
St. Thomas More wins and moves on in the championship.
However the referee makes a mistake and lists the substitute goalie as being suspended instead of the penalized first string goalie, as goalies do not require numbers.
This was not a questionable call on the pitch, this was a clerical mistake.
No one at St Thomas More said a word about the mistake and the suspended goalie was allowed to play in the next game he was supposed to be suspended from, while his substitute serves his penalty on the sidelines.
More wins that game and advances to the final, where they lose, to claim the silver.
That was the best the school has done, beamed coaches.
It does make one wonder if they had of been honest, if they may have won gold?
