Why the customer isn't always right Laura MacLeod, the owner of The Old Apothecary in downtown Halifax, says more employers need to stand up for staff when they're bullied by customers.

Canadian Tire says it has fired an employee who was caught on dash cam footage appearing to take a customer's car for a joyride.

The five-minute dash cam video posted on YouTube shows what appears to be an employee taking out a customer's BMW M2 car, exiting the Canadian Tires service shop and speeding around the block.

The video shows the joyride happened on the morning of May 11 and the YouTube post is listed as being the Canadian Tire Auto Service location in Markham on Major Mackenzie Drive East.

An employee is slapped across the face at work — but she’s the one who gets fired

An employee is slapped across the face at work — but she’s the one who gets fired Howard Levitt: The expectation that violent incidents should be cause for the perpetrator’s termination can sometimes be misguided . When Bassanese sued the company for wrongful dismissal, she succeeded, but if Dhanani was the one who had been fired, would he also have a case? Wazir Shakur was employed at Mitchell Plastics as a machine operator for six years. In August 2007, Shakur and another employee got into a verbal altercation that escalated until Shakur slapped the co-worker. The incident was reported to the human resources department. Following an investigation, the employer terminated Shakur for cause.

About midway through the video, the car reaches a speed of 112 km/h -- indicated on the dash cam speed register -- in what appears to be a residential area.

At the beginning of the video, the employee appears to enter the vehicle that is parked inside of the auto shop and revs the engine several times saying, "Time to go for a test drive" to another staff member before taking off shortly after.

Another person can be heard laughing saying, "I didn't know it's a f***ing M2 dude, it's a sick car."

The person then warns the employee: "Just be careful, he has a camera. Don't go too f***ed up in case it's recording."

Global News reached out to Canadian Tire who confirmed the employee was terminated.

"Canadian Tire and the Associate Dealer have absolutely no tolerance for the kind of behaviour seen in the video. The Associate Dealer has been in touch with the customer to apologize for the incident, the employee will no longer be employed at the store, and the police have been notified," a spokesperson said.

Second fire breaks out at Toronto high school, nearby homes being evacuated.
TORONTO — A Toronto high school has partially collapsed and neighbouring residents have had to leave their homes after a second fire in as many days broke out at the building, the city's fire chief said Tuesday. Large plumes of low-hanging smoke were billowing out of the York Memorial Collegiate Institute, which led to the decision to evacuate surrounding homes, Chief Matthew Pegg said. Firefighters said they were called out to the high school  at 3:24 a.m. Tuesday, about 13 hours after they were called to the first blaze at the building. No injuries have been reported, they said.
