Re: Claiming vehicles left by owners (reply)

Re: Tow and Storage meetings? (reply)
Doug. We will be the last to know since we are part of the towing industry. We were not informed of any of the other meetings because we are nobodys according to the masses. Sad but true.

Re: Bill #15 (reply)
It is time that the Ontario towing industry come to terms with the fact that our destiny is in jeopardy as a whole unless we establish ourselves as a viable industry. The only way to do this is to become recognized through an...
