Canadian RedBull Crashed Ice Skater Jacqueline Legere Takes Championship Top Spot For Second Year!
Myers would like to congratulate Canadian RedBull Crashed Ice skater Jacqueline Legere, who Myers Orléans Chev Buick GMC, Myers Orléans Nissan, and Myers Cadillac Chev Buick GMC teamed up to sponsor, on her second RedBull Crashed Ice Championship title!
Legere took on many other skaters from all over the world throughout the 2016/2017 RedBull Crashed Ice circuit, with the finals taking place in Ottawa along the Rideau Canal between the Chateau Laurier hotel and Parliament Hill. Legere went into the finals with an impressive season behind her and didn't disappoint the fans in the crowd as she fought to keep her Championship title for the second year.
Three Myers Dealerships Team Up to Sponsor RedBull Crashed Ice Skater Jacqueline Legere for 2016/2017 season!
Myers Cadillac Chev Buick GMC, Myers Orléans Chev Buick GMC, and Myers Orléans Nissan have teamed up to sponsor Canadian RedBull Crashed Ice Skater Jacqueline Legere as she defends her 2016 Champion title.
The RedBull Crashed Ice Championship has brought a great deal of attention to the world, and entertainment, of ice cross downhill - the fastest sport on skates where skaters race down a massive ice track filled with drops, hairpin turns, and gaps at speeds of more than 50 km/h. World Championship points are up for grabs at each of the stops and the competitor who skates through the season with the most points accumulated after the races is crowned World Champion.
Legere has been doing well this season, with appearances on the podium in Marseille, France where she placed 1st, and in Jyväskylä-Laajis, Finland when she placed 3rd. Cheer on the St. George, Ontario native while she rocks the Myers logo at the RedBull Crashed Ice Finals in Ottawa March 3rd and 4th. The event will take place along the Rideau Canal and is free. Tickets are available for purchase for those wishing to upgrade their RedBull Crashed Ice experience with Ice Club VIP Tickets. For full event details, visit the website here.

As the Myers Automotive Group donated $1 million towards the ACE unit, a few members from the Myers group and Mews family, including Mr. Hank Mews and son Mr. Robert Mews (Executive VP of The Myers Automotive Group) were on hand at the grand opening ceremony which was timed to a visit from Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, and Infrastructure Minister and local MPP, Bob Chiarelli.
The Mews family and the Myers Automotive Group have always felt it is important to give back to the Ottawa-area community and are happy to have made this contribution to the Queensway Carleton Hospital, where Mr. Hank Mews has previously sat on the hospital board.

J.D. Power Initial Quality Study
J.D. Power recently put out its Initial Quality study showing the top recognized brands in the automotive industry this year. The survey that was conducted asked 84,000 people any problems they may have encountered during the first 90 days of owning or leasing their new vehicle. As one of the highest rated vehicles compared to industry standard, Hyundai ranked as 4th overall, behind only Porshe, Jaguar and Kia.
"This is a clear shift in the quality landscape," said Renee Stephens, vice president of U.S. automotive quality at J.D. Power. "For so long, Japanese brands have been viewed by many as the gold standard in vehicle quality. While the Japanese automakers continue to make improvements, we're seeing other brands -- most notably Korean makes -- accelerating the rate of improvement."
As far as individual models go, General Motors Chevrolet vehicles tie with three other manufacturers, Hyundai, Volkswagen and Nissan as high ranked in overall satisfaction according to the survey results. Top placing models rankings include:
We are proud to announce that the Myers Automotive Group has donated $1,000,000 to the Queensway Carleton Hospital!
The Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation has announced the donation to the Acute Care of Elderly Unit, which will be named the Myers Automotive Acute Care of the Elderly Unit.
First of its kind in Eastern Ontario, the ACE Unit is expected to open in 2016 and contain 34 beds to better attend the needs of the growing elderly community in the greater Ottawa area. Currently, the population in Ottawa consists of about 14% of residents being over the age of 65. This is expected to increase by 3.5% per year over the next 20 years.
This new expansion in the Ottawa medical industry will give focused care to our senior community members, giving them the service they need for shorter hospital stays and the ability to stay local for more specialized treatments.
Myers Automotive Group is proud to have been a part of this year's WSP Sens Alumni & NHL Celebrity Cup tournament that took place on March 28th. This event raised more than $100,000 for the Ottawa Senators Foundation in support of children and youth in our community.
