Proposed bill demands transparency, accountability from Alberta auto industry

By | December 4, 2017

The proposed legislation: “A Better Deal for Consumers and Businesses Act” aims to protect Albertans who are looking to buy or repair a vehicle by holding the automotive industry more accountable and transparent.

The changes would include requiring automotive businesses to disclose important vehicle information to consumers, like a vehicle’s history, requiring a standard bill of sale for automotive sales, establishing minimum warranty protections for repairs, and requiring repair shops to provide written estimates upon request to consumers prior to beginning work.

The government said the bill would also strengthen oversight of the province’s auto regulator, the Alberta Motor Vehicle Industry Council (AMVIC), by making the council into a public agency.

ARMVIC is responsible for providing consumer protection in the motor vehicle industry.

Jon at QPL was very helpful with the closing of my house sale - very efficient!

We worked with Jon Ablett. In addition to being prompt, flexible, and organized, he did a great job of explaining the legal details of all our cases. The service we receive from Jon Ablett and Quarry Park Law is consistently thorough and efficient. The staff have been a pleasure to work with and we would recommend them for real estate and business law in particular.

I wish to acknowledge the professionalism, and support that we have received from Alya Nazarali.  Alya was there to educate and advise us each step of the way in our legal matters.  I appreciated the way Alya took the time to understand our situation and built our case by negotiating, and mediating positively on my behalf with a purpose to continually move progress forward.  I recommend Alya and Quarry Park Law to anyone seeking fair and professional legal representation with family law matters.

This is the third time I've used Jonathan Ablett for buying or selling a house. The first time was three and a half years ago, then this past month he helped with the home we sold and then the house we just bought. He is very professional, makes an effort to have a flexible schedule, always works in your best interest, and will answer every question you have. I recommend him to anyone requiring a lawyer for property reasons.
