A pair of technicians at a Winnipeg garage have been fired after a dash camera caught them swearing, speeding and mocking a customer’s culture during a road test to check his vehicle’s performance.
At one point the three-minute video captured last Friday appears to show the vehicle being driven more than 80 kilometres an hour on a residential street with a posted speed limit of 50.
The video was posted online by the unnamed customer, who told CTV News via email he didn’t complain directly to the garage.
Shop owner Kevin Kaniuga was made aware of the posting last Friday—the day before the technicians were fired.
Kaniuga says he was lost for words when he saw what the two had done.
The customer has not filed a complaint with police, who say they will only investigate incidents that have been reported to them.
“The remarks and actions that we saw in that video were just not anything to do with (the garage). Our policies are trust to our customers. I was totally lost for words,” said Kaniuga. “To go over the speed limit was not necessary.”
Kaniuga said he’s tried to apologize to the customer but so far his calls have gone unanswered.
“If he’s watching this, I am truly sincerely sorry.”
