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.

‘Who would do this?’: Police release dashcam video capturing brazen hit-and-run on Highway 410 Police are trying to identify the driver of a vehicle that failed to remain on scene after causing another vehicle to spin out of control on Highway 410 in Brampton. In a tweet, Ontario Provincial Police released dashcam footage of the vehicle tailgating the other car in the carpool lane before trying to pass. The incident happened on May 3. The vehicle can be seen clipping the front end of the other vehicle after trying to pass, causing the other vehicle to veer onto the shoulder of the road before spinning around and coming to a stop. “Who would do this?” asked OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt in a tweet depicting the incident.

A five minute dash cam angle video posted on YouTube, shows what appears to be an employee taking out a customer ’ s car from a Canadian Tire service shop and speeding around the block in a residential area.

Dashcam footage can capture accidents, criminal activity, road rage, and more. But, they can also catch auto service staff taking a joyride in your fancy car . Footage sent in from Toronto resident David Ha shows exactly that—a Canadian Tire service staff member taking a BMW M2 Coupe out for a test

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."

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.
