Luckily, I've always been aware of the shady practices some gyms do when you try to cancel your membership. The last time I quit a gym, I made sure all the paperwork was in place and ready to fax to my credit card company in case.

The next culprits are cell-phone companies.

Where in Canada do you live?

I hate cell phone companies, It took me forever to set up my voice mail.

And I hate the CRA above anything else! I was trying to make an account but the pin number expired, so I was told to call them. Which I did and I was on the phone with some indian guy who could hardly speak english telling me I need to delete my cookies and cache, over and over again...
