Ever wonder how some companies can charge hundreds of dollars less to do your roof? Two reasons: SLAVE LABOUR and COUNTERFEIT SHINGLES. A credible source today has confirmed for us that the Ministry of Health and Safety is blitzing roofing construction sites, looking for counterfeit shingles. There is, of course, the safety aspect, but one of their priorities is to bust contractors and suppliers importing counterfeit shingles from Eastern countries. These shingles have the same wrapping as the major North American brands (sort of the way you can buy a $50 Fendi or Coach purse), but they are not manufactured from those companies. They are sent over from Taiwan and do not meet the weight regulations of North American shingles. What does that mean? That means your roof, which cost a couple to a few thousand, will be replaced again shortly for some more thousands. And the immigrants up there, you ask? They are working for a lot less than minimum wage and sleeping in vans. It's no wonder our economy is going to hell. I was at the bank today and the teller told me that every cheque has to be certified from now on. This is new, I thought. The reason is that there is a marked increase in rubber cheques. No one has money. I suspect that if we keep buying foreign labour and material, that the economy is going to keep going downhill.
