    Power Wheelchair sales

    Power Wheelchair sales

    I am trying to buy a power wheelchair for my wife and have discovered that this little slice of the retail market is highly resistant to shopping. A trip through the market on the 'net reveals a wide variety of models and prices, lots of photos and specifications but it seems that you are...

    Winter cyclists are like UFO sightings, very rare and almost always reported by enthusiasts.

    Housing costs

    FWIW We bought our starter home in 1961 in North York for less than $15,000 on a weekly wage of $105. The 30 year, 6.75% mortgage carried for under $100 per month including property tax. We are busy folks and never got around to moving, the house is now worth $600,000.
