I'm glad to see OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt and Mark Graves on this panel. I've their his interractions with Ontario's towing industry and he seems to fair, impartial and informed. I think their problem is far outside the autoclub environment, but it represents a start is quelling Ontario's problems with rogue towers.  Good luck with the panel forum.    R.
