Federal Minister of Industry, the Honorable Maxime Bernier has offered his support on the Right to Repair issue, and indicated that he will speak with the car companies in the coming weeks about their refusal to release information, codes and tools to independent service and repair shops in Canada.

The minister met with representatives of the automotive aftermarket in St-Georges, Quebec, to discuss the issue.

The meeting took place at the request of Marcel Veilleux, president of Beauce Auto Accessories, a Uni-Select associate member who operates a total of seven auto parts stores in the Beauce region. Veilleux was joined at the meeting by Benoit Fortin, president of Auto Quirion & Drouin, a NAPA associate member with four stores in the Minister’s riding.

The delegation also included Gary O’Connor, executive vice-president, Uni-Select; Denis Mathieu, chief financial officer, Uni-Select; and Marc Brazeau, executive vice-president, AIA Canada.
