Remember the “sting” operation last year, when Service Alberta staff posed as homeowners and busted a number of contractors for offering cash deals? Well, the folks at Alberta’s consumer protection branch are back on the jobsite again: this time going after what CBC calls “a disgraced former financier and real estate agent,” Dedric Robinson. In this story from CBC Edmonton, Robinson, who did business under the names The Improvement Source, Capitol Renovations, Capitol Construction and Capitol Abatement, is being investigated by the government agency for a variety of fly-by-night behaviours.
