GUEST – Phil Edmonston, Author – Lemon-Aid new and used car guides

TOPIC – Lemon-Aid: On the Road Again

INFO – The 43rd annual edition of Phil Edmonston’s Lemon-Aid new and used car guides is just now hitting the bookstores, as its author and first Quebec NDP MP sets out on his 43rd annual cross-Canada tour this February. On this trip, Phil will highlight the need for auto Lemon Laws throughout Canada and explain why Prime Minister Harper’s $33.8 million grant to Toyota Canada to build more $50,000 Lexus hybrid cars in Canada is both an unneeded handout and a taxpayer sellout.

Phil’s next crusade is bringing the Lemon Law, currently available in the States, to Canada. If a consumer has to take their car in for repairs more than three times in a row without the problem being resolved, they can then sue the car company without government intervention. The car company then has to either refund the consumer’s money or replace the car.
