    Ran into a New Scam today

    I have a Canadian Tire Triangle Card. I'm sure most are aware that its a points card. Buy stuff get CT Points/money. I use mine for my business. I have 5 of them for Myself, employees and family so I gather up a fair bit of money on the card each year. Around this time I start looking at what I want to buy. Last Time I bought a Big Dewalt tool box. A couple weeks ago I buy something at Canadian Tire and the girl says "do you want to use some of your points?" No I just save them up, I say. I glance at her screen and it says $300 and something available. I think to myself, Hmmm, I thought it was over $2000 last time I looked? But don't think much of it. Thought I needed to have a talk with the wife cause she probably ordered something but she would usually tell me. But then we are renovating the house so maybe she didn't. I ask she says "No." I ask my employees and they all say No. I log in to my account which I haven't logged into to in several years since the numbers come on the statement. I scroll back through purchases and last month someone made 2 purchases a day apart in Scarborough totaling $2200.00 using points money. I call Triangle and after a short discussion it seems that someone hacked into my account and requested a Loyalty points card. Not a credit card, this is just a card that allows access to the points then they went and cleaned out my points money. Triangle will investigate and they are sending me new cards. He won't say what would happen with my missing points money but I assume its gone. They are going to email me the results. Bummer.

    Sled ride

    I never plan anything so I never end up going anywhere. I don't see this year being any different. .......Other than the wife probably wont be dragging me to Florida this winter.

    2021 Trail Pass

    The OFSC brought in the MTO so that they could get permit enforcement from police rather than trail patrol. The Government did not take over the trails. All the money goes to the OFSC.

    2021 Trail Pass

    Boys, I never said it was an excuse. I'm just wondering what the OFSC has planned.

    2021 Trail Pass

    I got my 3 passes the other day. I have stopped paying much attention to the Covid news but I did hear on the radio this morning that our area is getting close to the max hospitalized cases that the area can handle. Doug will be locking the province down again before the groomers roll. And speaking of groomers, how is the OFSC going to deal with multiple groomer operators using one groomer? Compete sterilization between shifts?

    PERSONAL opinions of an OPP SAVE officer

    Interesting. I've always wondered about this. The OFSC claims no responsibility for the stake lines yet OFSC members put the stake lines in and they are shown on the OFSC maps.

    Justin Trudeau is Doing a Great Job

    Perfect, the generation that hates to work will now be paid $2250 per month to play video games at home. This should be a good life lesson for them.

    Gas prices

    They put a 15% Fuel surcharge on concrete deliveries years ago, that summer it jumped from $1 to $1.40. Its been on my bills ever since. I don't expect it will ever

    Collet Mic ??

    So while we are talking about communicators, I need a set for the Oxygen helmets I just bought for her and me. (For some reason I still feel the need to get yelled at while riding. lol) Royal is selling Cardo. I've heard good things bout Uclear and Sena. So what do I buy? Leaning towards Uclear for the Mic less design.

    Neil Peart died

    Love the Hip but (talent wise) they were a fraction of Rush. The Hip was a Canadian success story, Rush was international. My Top Canadian bands. 1. Rush 2. Tragically Hip 3. Blue Rodeo 4. April Wine 5.Niel Young
