Ontario banning door-to-door sales of some goods as of March 1
http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/o ... -1.4549181Say goodbye to the salesperson knocking on your door to ask when you last cleaned your ducts.
A ban on unsolicited, door-to-door sales of select household appliances — such as furnaces or water heaters — will take effect March 1 in Ontario.
If you enter a contract in a door-to-door sale after that date, the agreement will be legally void and you'll be able to keep the goods and services with no obligations, the province said in a news release.
"One of my constituents said to me, 'We really need to do something to make sure people feel comfortable opening up their doors; that they feel secure in their own homes," he said at Queen's Park Friday.
The ban covers the sale of:
water treatment devices
duct cleaning services
any good or service that performs or combines one or more of the above functions
Good on Ontario for taking on these scammers. Savvy RFDers can sign-up to get free junk.
