THEY WERE WARNED:
I thought a little item in the previous post deserved emphasis because it has yet to be picked up by the mass media. The present recall of hockey sticks in Canada is not the first such recall. According to an item on the Health Canada website there was a previous recall of "mini-hockey sticks" in 2008. This raises certain interesting questions. Why were further imports of hockey sticks from China not routinely monitored and refused entry before they entered the market ? It isn't as if the problem was a totally new one. How many more such items are floating about the "consumersphere" in this country today ? What exactly is the "coverage" of supposed consumer protection in this country ? How much of the laxity in the regulations is due to an ideological bent to "free trade" and the benefit to importers on the part of our government ? Are there plans to expand the coverage of monitoring in light of this event ? So on and so on and so on. Will the Conservative government once more dodge responsibility in this matter ?
