If you made any purchases at Canadian Tire after July 1st which had the new -and now scrapped- Eco Fees applied, Canadian Tire is now issuing refunds for those Eco Fees if you bring in the receipt.
Here's the story from the Toronto Star:
Ontario scraps controversial eco fees
Ontario’s controversial eco fees have been scrapped for 90 days while the program is retooled—and taxpayers will pick up the $5 million over the next three months to keep the program going, Environment Minister John Gerretsen said Tuesday.
“These new eco fees are gone.”
Canadian Tire said immediately after Gerretsen's announcement that it will refund any eco-fees paid on the items covered in the program since July 1st if they bring in their receipts.
Go get your money back, people! If not for the money, then do it just for the principle of it.
