FINAL ASSEMBLY
* FEBRUARY 2024
Owner watches
helplessly as Apple
AirTags track his
vehicle to Dubai
A TORONTO MAN HAS DRAWN
perhaps the most comprehensive
map showing how stolen vehicles
end up in the Middle East.
Unfortunately, it was his 2022 GMC
Yukon SUV - with Apple AirTags
on board - that helped draw that
map.
According to a Jan. 15 report
by CBC, Andrew's (his last name
was withheld) vehicle was stolen
Aug. 7. Using the reports from the
AirTags - which ping off nearby
Apple smartphones to determine
the location - he tracked the vehicle
to the Canadian Pacific terminal
in Vaughn, Ont., north of
downtown Toronto, where police
narrowed its location to one of two
containers.
Andrew said neither the CP Rail
police nor the municipal police
intervened, so he watched as the
SUV went to Montreal and then fell
off the grid for three weeks before

The Nissan Canada Foundation collaborates
with charitable organizations, and this year it is
focusing on food and security, said Tara Willis,
the automaker's senior manager of diversity,
equity, inclusion and philanthropy.
The foundation has donated $700,000 to its philanthropic
partners, with 47 per cent of that earmarked
for food and security, Willis said.
" High inflation, food prices going up, visits to
food banks and food theft rising made us want to
help even more, " she said.
" Our employees like to give back. ... We love to
see the impact we're making. " - ANC
SAY WHAT?
We really need action,
and that action is buckshot.
There's no silver bullets here.

A sign of bad luck
Little sympathy for
an innocent BMW
caught in a sandwich
IT'S A CLASSIC CASE OF
being in the wrong place at the
wrong time.
When a powerful winter
storm swept through the
Mississauga, Ont., area the
weekend of Jan. 13, it toppled the
sign of an iconic restaurant -
John Anderson Charcoal Broil
Hamburger - and crushed a
late-model BMW X5 crossover.
According to a Jan. 15 post on
the website BlogTO, winds were
forecast to gust to as high as 90
km/h that weekend. A video
shared on Instagram by user
areacode416ix shows the X5 with
the large metal sign resting on
top.
Comments on the Instagram
video almost unanimously
raised more concern about the
restaurant's sign than the luxury
SUV. Staff at John Anderson
When a Mississauga burger
joint's sign fell on a BMW,
guess which got the most
sympathy on Instagram?
PHOTO: BLOGTO
said the sign has been removed.
On the bright side, the owner
of a Hyundai Santa Fe crossover
probably owes the X5 owner a
meal: The BMW valiantly took
the brunt of the incident -
apparently sparing the Santa Fe
that was parked in the next stall
any damage. - ANC
