Alexander Auto in Cornwall Ontario Picketed by Unhappy Customer – June 20, 2013

Alexander AutoCFN – For most people a vehicle is the largest purchase they make next to buying a home.   For Shirley Brunet her birthday gift to herself of a 2007 Dodge Caliber turned into a nightmare.     To the point that Ms Brunet and her family were picketing Alexander Auto in Cornwall Ontario as they are refusing to resolve the issue to her satisfaction.

In the video below she complains of issues with the car that she not only alleges that Mr. John Alexander, CEO, refused to fix, but she states lied about even bothering to repair!

Mr. Alexander spoke briefly with CFN and said that he had no intention of refunding the car and then became irate and stated that he had no further comment.

dodge caliburMs Brunet & her family said they’d keep picketing Alexander Auto until he refunds her car or has it fixed properly.

  1. Jamie “hate” is a mighty strong word to use and no I don’t hate Cornwall. I hate the way the administration is run, I hate the way some people stick their heads in the sand and don’t want to make improvements for the town and dance at every tune that the clique make them do. The town of Cornwall itself is a nice place if only the people would wake up and see it for what it is and stop dancing to the tune of the clique and see themselves for what and who they are. A lot of places are not better at all – they only want to make it look that way. You should have seen our experience here the other day and we are still talking about it. Ottawa has more nutcases than what little Cornwall has and that is the truth. The gang problem is horrible here and it isn’t safe to live here at all. People are mighty frightened and the police can’t handle the problem either. We live in one of the worst areas of the city and Hugger can vouch for that (Ottawa South) and yes a lot of beautiful homes but it is the low income people who have destroyed Ottawa with the drugs, weapons, etc. coming through. Don’t let this happen to Cornwall. Behind my building are beautiful residential streets including where I live but behind on one of the residential streets a woman was stabbed in broad daylight and it isn’t the firsts time that this happened on that street. For a long time I didn’t carry my cell phone around with me but my family forced me to do so lately. To all those who think that Cornwall and area have no good salesmanship they are absolutely wrong because we have gone to fill up gas a number of times on Second Street West and entered their store and the sales people were wonderful as well as in a convenience store on Second Street West and elsewhere in Cornwall even for clothing and at Sears to replace a battery in my husband’s watch and the lady Caroline at Sears was more than excellent in the watch department. The service in Cornwall is impecable. Some of the sales people at Cornwall Toyota have worked here in Ottawa and know Ottawa’s mentality and it isn’t good at all. All went back to live and work in Cornwall. I personally along with my husband would not deal with Alexander Dealership – know who you are dealing with.

  2. Well….part of Ottawa’s problem is that they don’t plan well. In numerous locations you will have high end homes right across the street or in the same area as low income housing. That’s just asking for trouble.

  3. Hugger you are absolutely right. Right behind me there are homes in the area of $700K to the area of a million or more. On my street and the ones right near are homes in the $400, 450 and upwards to $500K. Below me are townhouses both sold and rented and are eyesores. Yes you are right indeed when you said that there would be expensive homes on one spot and low income in another and we are surrounded by low income housing nearby and it is mighty dangerous. In past years there was very little problems compared to today. Robert told us that since the 90’s era came and Jean Chrétien let in every unwanted into the country Ottawa went down hill as well as other cities. The gang problem is unbelievable. The fights are with the different groups in the city and even Kanata and Orleans, etc. are not safe at all. At 4:41 a.m. I heard the cops racing by and said to myself they are most likely headed to Heron Gate or the other low income housing. Yesterday was a breather because usually I hear anywhere from 5 to 10 and more a night. My son told me that many bars have 11 cops showing up because the gangs infiltrate the bars and start fighting and throwing things around and smashing bottles, etc. Ottawa has changed so much over time.
