Canadians bought 500 million mowers *in Canada* (assuming one person/business buys one mower over the time frame)?... What I am wondering about is how they can take a $7.5 million dollar settlement and divide it by what should amount to around 500 million people, and somehow we all eventually get $15.
Anyone else thought about this problem in math. I am wondering if it is a scam. Perhaps to get email addresses. Not sure. Even a grade 4 math graduate should have been able to figure out this was not going to work out ...
I would expect it's more like $7.5 million divided by 35+ million. The 35+ million would be further reduced as not everyone would be old enough to be buying in the time frame.
Some won't be aware of it, no matter what the advertising / news articles. Some won't be bothered to find receipts and likely may decide not to file. Some will think it's a scam.
If people are like me ... mowers last a long time so many may be like MP in post # 11 where the time line does not match and despite the no documentation option, won't file a claim. I suspect I am in the same situation but am checking my records.
There are also people like my folks and my neighbour who buy mowers used so they are not likely to count.
Several neighbours have a service cutting their lawns so a couple of mowers may be covering many properties that have no need to buy one.
