Dave Baker is a used car salesman on a mission to make Canada a more fair and equitable place. Go ahead and take a moment. Be skeptical. It took me six months to overcome my initial aversion to the predominant narrative of auto sales. I was sure that there was a catch. There had to be a bait-and-switch somewhere along the way.
If you're like me and you travel a lot--and you like cheering for the underdog, you will appreciate this story of an up-and-coming challenger brand ...
