Alberta: Pay Your Outstanding Tickets Now, Or We’ll Garnish Your Wages
In a move that dead-beat fathers may be familiar with, the Alberta Justice Department will resort to seizing wages, bank accounts and even tax refunds to collect payment on unpaid tickets if they are not paid within 30 days from the time a warning letter is sent. There is currently about $126 Million in unpaid tickets and the Government hopes to have as much success as they did with a pilot project two years ago in which they collected about 50% of tickets they targetted.

Calgary BMW Tech Takes Customer Car For Joyride
A Calgary BMW service tech took a customer vehicle for a quick joyride, unfortunately for the tech witnesses saw the easily recognizable HPF Stage2 Turbo M3 and notified the owner who is a local celebrity, rage2. To top it all the entire act was captured via GPS data-logging. Having your vehicle abused by lot boys and service techs is always a risk at dealerships but not at luxury brand dealership like BMW. Calgary BMW for their part is handling the incident very professionally! Kudos to them.
