    That's interesting. I need to change my original comment to technicians not mechanics. And clarify that I wasn't talking about the guys on #5 that are very knowledgeable on engines, transmissions, rear-ends etc. but, rather, guys that get out of a school and think they are ready to hang a sign. You guys in Canada seem to go through a lot better training period than we do here.

  7. So they have a few steps I can see to establish a satellite location in Canada.

    Federal & provincial incorporation
    I see hiring local talent before bringing in outside talent. This is very viable to do. I do agree @AModelCat employees from US would take some more research and use in Canada.
    Below is the Corp. Reference I was reading about cross border expansion.

    Extra Provincial Registration: Registering a U.S. Company To Do Business in Canada

    No sir, he was sharp as they come. And I especially liked the story about cranking that motor with the manifold off for the boss man, LOL. The advantage older mechanics have is they had to understand and pinpoint the issue and troubleshoot by sound, sight and feel. That’s a lost art these days, guys who know the Mechanical motors are getting more rare every day.
