Does anybody here know why they can't sell the small bottles of ac recharge in Canada, like they have in the US?

I just spent three hours talking to provincial and federal bureaucrats and still came up ignorant. All the federal regs only include CFCs & HCFCs and for the most part don't even pertain to what the provinces do. The provincial regs don't even mention it.

Canada customs said that it is OK to import it, but that doesn't mean that it is legal to use it.

I personally think it is just a big scam, being contolled by the refrigerant service people.

Good question, the manager at crappytire said it was nation wide, but he could be wrong.
Anybody?

Thanks for the offer, but I already have someone who can send me some from NY.

My problem is why I can't go to the local Walmart here and get it myself.

[B]UPDATE[/B]

Good news for us Canucks could be on the way. I have been talking to Crappytire and have convinced them that r134a is not regulated here. I"m sure it will take a while for their laywers to sort it out, but we may soon be able to buy charging kits in Canada.

No good news. Crappytire basically said in their reply that although it is not illegal to sell it, it might be in the near future. The reply was kind of vague and wishy washy, but i'm guessing that they have no plans on bringing it into Canada.

They must be making too much money, ripping people off, by overcharging for AC repairs.:mad:
