August was a good month – a really good month – for motor vehicle dealers in our province. After more than a year of year-over-year sales going down, August brought a turnaround….more new units left dealer lots in August of this year than last.

It’s a hatred every bit as fresh as it was in January when Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred shared with the public details of how the Astros cheated their way to winning the 2017 World Series.
