Nestle and Tim Hortons top plastic polluters. Again.
Those discarded coffee cups and plastic water bottles are adding up. For the second year in a row, Greenpeace Canada says Nestlé and Tim Hortons were the top companies behind branded plastic bottles, coffee cups, lids and other plastic waste collected in shoreline cleanups across the country
Are drivers being misled?
How often do you really need to have your vehicle serviced? A class-action lawsuit is claiming drivers are being misled about their vehicle’s maintenance schedule, and raising questions about how often drivers need to service their cars or even change the oil.
It’s one number but it can have a huge impact on your life — from whether you qualify for a mortgage to renting an apartment or buying a car. That’s why millions of Canadians are signing up online to get those three powerful digits. Their credit score.
But did you know not all credit scores are the same? Or that some scores carry more weight than others? We put four popular companies (Credit Karma, Borrowell, Equifax and TransUnion) to the test and the numbers just don’t add up. Each company offered totally different scores. Some were much higher and some were much lower.
Plus, in our investigation we find out that big banks and other lenders aren’t using the same scores you get. Most lenders pull a secret score that you may never see.
