CHRISTMAS EVE MEDIA ALERT: Walmart Canada extends store hours on December 24 in select Ontario stores

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Dec. 24, 2013 /CNW/ - This past weekend's ice storm has impacted hundreds of thousands of people across Ontario who have been unable to get ready for Christmas as they dealt with the various effects of the storm.
