A store doesn't have to have enuf evidence to press charges against u to ban u from a store. U r free online shop there, anyways.

First off, I've neva seen a security guard at Cdn Tire. *side eye* Besides, IF TRUE... just go to another Cdn Tire. No 1 caresss nor GAF. That's like banning you from a MickyD's. Sooo... who caresss. 5 more down the street. Better yet go to Home Depot. Much better service anyway. Electric Light Bulb

You don’t get let go and then get banned from the store, I call BS. If OP didn’t want to comply with security and store manager, it’s possible that the OP could’ve been pulled back for questioning for dumping before being discovered and confronted OP. A lot of big box stores employ undercover security to walk the stores and follow/profile people for theft.

To be fair... They are doing you a favor. Why would anyone shop at Canadian Tire still?

Local CTs have hired security to stand at the door, I'm sure in response to putting in self-checkouts.

Being banned from crappy tire is no loss. They sell low quality garbage. You not saving money when you have to buy the same item again else where.

You might have legal grounds if you hadn't exited the door yet. Even if you were guilty, you're not guilty until you've walked out of the store with the item.

That being said. You also could of completely diffused the situation. Sorry it was a misunderstanding, I was putting my toque in my pocket. See.. it's my toque. That's probably what I would of done. It's occurred to me before that a floor walker might see someone put their phone, sunglasses, toque etc... back in their pocket and mistake it for shoplifting. I don't think I'd take the route of provoking them as a solution to the problem.

This is so incorrect but it is a common fallacy. However I will state that this is best practice as most LPOs are lacking in training, evidence, court practices and being able to formulate their observations into intelligible thought and speech. However the C.C. is very clear on when a theft is committed and I highly doubt that Toronto P.S. members at the LCBO are going to wait for someone to just exit the store first.

https://www.canlii.org/en/ca/laws/stat/ ... 322subsec2

322 (1) Every one commits theft who fraudulently and without colour of right takes, or fraudulently and without colour of right converts to his use or to the use of another person, anything, whether animate or inanimate, with intent
(a) to deprive, temporarily or absolutely, the owner of it, or a person who has a special property or interest in it, of the thing or of his property or interest in it;
(b) to pledge it or deposit it as security;
(c) to part with it under a condition with respect to its return that the person who parts with it may be unable to perform; or
(d) to deal with it in such a manner that it cannot be restored in the condition in which it was at the time it was taken or converted.

Time when theft completed
(2) A person commits theft when, with intent to steal anything, he moves it or causes it to move or to be moved, or begins to cause it to become movable.

LOL. Yes, it's an actual rent-a-guard.
