Publications ("UCanImport") announces that the Company is supporting the
British Columbia-based law firm, Dinning Hunter Lambert & Jackson, which has
filed a lawsuit in British Columbia against various auto manufacturers for
practices in contravention of Canada's Competition Act. UCanImport has agreed
to act as a conduit for this lawsuit by hosting related information and
registration documentation on its web site at
    The lawsuit, filed on February 26 2008, at Victoria, British Columbia,
alleges that BMW Canada Inc., Hyundai Auto Canada Corp., Hyundai Canada Inc.,
Mercedes-Benz Canada Inc., Mitsubishi Motor Sales of Canada Inc., Subaru
Canada Inc., Toyota Canada Inc., Volvo Cars of Canada and Volvo Group Canada
Inc., have, contrary to the federally-regulated Competition Act, implemented
unlawful policies designed to curtail imports from the United States into
Canada. These policies include: preventing U.S. dealerships from selling new
vehicles to Canadians, implementing new mandatory documentation requirements
with exploitive fees for distribution, voiding OEM warranties, dictating
unnecessary modifications and/or charging exploitive labour rates for
modifications and/or inspections, as well as forcing Canadians to wait up to
90-days for the service and/or inspections deemed mandatory prior to vehicle
registration. In addition, some manufacturers have refused to provide the
mandatory documentation to Canadians, effectively blocking their vehicle
certification in Canada.
