This is how the Ontario franchsie law went in 2000. I was there.
Everyone’s interests were served very well, except the powerless: mom-and-pop franchise investors.
Sure a few attorneys were made multi-millionaires (continue to blackball, block and betray sincere advocates), the franchise bar has reached record numbers (God love those disclosure document revisions!) while the 2nd-worst-chumps, the false protagonists (the franchisors) got a short-term sales bump but their reputation continues to nose dive.
On any legitimate public policy level, the Arthur Wishart Act is a complete and total failure.
But as a way to launder mom-and-pop life savings via dim-witted franchisors?
Priceless to the true champions of tyranny (the franchise bar legal elite).
