Since I don't get out to the west end much and likely won't get there in person anytime soon, I thought I'd use this forum to publicly thank Ralph at Canadian Tire, Carling Road. I hope he reads these forums. Last Friday, while setting up the LHFR stage road, my alternator ceased to function. Luckily, the battery had enough "juice" to get me back to HQ in McDonalds Corners. Since I needed to be there on Saturday morning to place workers in their correct locations on the stage road and needed access to the HAM radio in my car, it was urgent that I get the car fixed. I called Ralph, who had the parts, the tow got me to the Carling Road store at about 6:30-7:00, where they replaced the alternator, and I was able to be back at the rally in time on Saturday morning.
Thanks Ralph, you got me and the rally out of a tight spot.
