    FROM:                  Penny Aujla, Events and Marketing Coordinator


    Dominion Command has notified us of a fraudulent website that looks exactly like their website being advertised through Facebook. The website also has a fake poppy store on it which collects your credit card information. Please make sure the information below is distributed to your members and the community.

    Dominion Command issued the following statement:

    The Royal Canadian Legion warns members of the public of a fraudulent website that is misrepresenting themselves as the Legion. The website, displaying the Legion logo and VETS Canada logo plus information from the Legion’s national website, features an online ‘Legion Shop’ which sells Poppy items protected under trademark.

    Listed as www.legionca.com, this website was widely promoted using Facebook ads, even going so far as to create a bogus Facebook page to draw in supporters. The website is operating illegally and deceiving people into thinking they are supporting the Legion and Veterans through their purchases. Sites such as this may also be used to steal money and personal information with every transaction.

    The Legion has reported the website and Facebook pages to the authorities and has taken steps to have the website, Facebook page and ads removed. We encourage anyone who purchased items through the website to contact their financial institution to ensure their credit card and personal information are secure.

    Although their motivations are not known, the Legion is shocked and disgusted that our trademarks and goodwill have been used to mislead Canadians and to profit from their support for Veterans.

    Kaslo Building Supplies - ACE 


    Jeff and Monica Davie

    6521 Hwy 31, Kaslo 



    In 1997, Jeff and Monica Davie took over Kaslo Building Supplies from Monica’s parents, Fred and Elaine Richinger. Back then it was known as Irly Bird. Throughout the years, the business has been through a few banner changes, but it has always remained independently owned and operated

    Kaslo Building Supplies employs between fifteen and twenty people though the season. All three Davie boys have worked at the store, as well as a number of long-time locals, adding to a familiar and friendly atmosphere. The staff and the family’s dedication to the business and their loyal customers are what has helped the store become what it is today. With a strong service culture and commitment to quality, Kaslo Building Supplies works with members of the community to help their building dreams come true.

    Since joining the ACE buying group, there have been many positive changes to the store, including competitive pricing and a wider inventory of building products and tools. Come in and see the changes, and have some complimentary popcorn! Check out the garden centre, the new paint products which many local painters have endorsed, the kids’ toys, and our great selection of animal feed.
