TORONTO (CD The sign Bt tlic entrance to the discount service station read: "I" per cent off gas." One customer paid llic regu- lar price and received coupons l.o the value of. 10 per cent ot bis the coupons could be applied only to service, not gas. A newspaper advertisement taid customers at a grocery store could buy a few things and pet a "tree Item." It didn't say the customer had to submit trading stamps, to the value of ?.i. in order to pick up the "free11 Item. Tiie customers were not very happy, and neither was the Ad- vertising Stnndards Council, which found (he grocery store and service station owners had bioken the Canadian Code of Advertising Standards. These two were nmong 16 cases o( infringements on the code in the first quarter of 1972, when the council investigated 74 complaints. OIITAIN'S PROMISES In tlio 16 cases where In- fringements were proven, the council issued Idlers of rebuke ant! received promises of im- proved, and more honest, adver- tNng. The council, an Independent nrbilralion body established by the. Canadian advertising indus- try, is made up of 1G voluntary rcpi'cscnlnlK'cs of consumers, edvcrtisers and buFinessmeu. It administers the Canadian Cotle ot Advertising Standards, but has no powers cf enforce- ment other than persuasion and (Ls influence in the advertising industry. Tiie council sa. in a state- ment that in the last halt of 1971 It dealt 233 complaints and recorded 51 code violations. Complaints have concerned misleading advertisements newspapers, on radio and televi- sion, display cards, h.indbills packages and in catalogues, They dealt with advertising of dairy products, draperies, new cars, plugs, credit unions, soft drinks, record club offers housing developments, televi- sion sets and clothing. All DISCONTINUED A credit union which warned its customers (hat everyone else in the consumer credit business was unduly costly and unfair to consumers was told the council considered the ads in violation of the unfair disparagement clause of the advertising code. The advertiser disagreed but iliscnntimicd the ad mid prom- ised the theme would not be re- pealed. A soil drink company which offered n "cents deal which was not generally available, apologized for ils failure lo mention that Ihe offer only ap- plied "at participating dealers." II assured the council the quali- ficalion would be included in fu- ture ads.
