Tiie customers were not very happy, and neither was the Ad- vertising Standards Council, which found the grocery store and service station mvncrs had broken the Canadian Code of Advertising Standards. These two were among 16 cases of infringements on the code in tiie first quarter of 1972, when the council investigated 7-1 complaints.
