(« pratique commerciale déloyale ») (a) to do or say anything or to fail to do or say anything if, as a result, a consumer might reasonably be deceived or misled; or (b) to make a false claim or representation. 2(2) In determining whether anything is an unfair business practice within the meaning of subsection (1), the factors to be considered shall include the general impression given. 2(3) Without limiting the generality of subsection (1), any of the following representations, acts or omissions, when made or engaged in by a supplier in relation to goods or to a consumer transaction, is deemed for the purposes of this Act to be an unfair business practice within the meaning of that subsection: (a) a representation that the goods have sponsorship, approval, performance characteristics, accessories, ingredients, components, quantities, uses or benefits that they do not have; (b) a representation that the supplier has sponsorship, approval, status, affiliation or connection that the supplier does not have; (c) a representation that the goods are of a particular standard, quality, grade, style or model when they are not; (d) a representation that the goods are new or unused when they are not, or when they are in a deteriorated state, or have been altered or reconditioned, or have been reclaimed from a previous purchaser; (e) a false representation as to the extent to which the goods have been used; (f) a false representation as to the history or usage of the goods; (g) a false representation as to the reason the goods are available; (h) a false representation that the goods have been made available in accordance with a previous representation; (i) a representation that might reasonably lead a consumer to conclude that the goods are available in greater quantities than are in fact available from the supplier; (j) a representation that the goods are available, when the supplier has no intention of supplying or otherwise disposing of the goods as represented; (k) a false representation that a service, part or replacement of the goods, or the addition of new goods, or the repair of the goods, is necessary or desireable; (l) a representation that a price benefit or advantage exists with respect to the goods or with respect to the consumer transaction when it does not; (m) a representation that a solicitation of or any communication with a consumer is for a certain purpose or intent when it is not for that purpose or intent; (n) a false representation that the consumer transaction involves or does not involve rights, remedies or obligations; (o) a representation that a salesperson, representative, employee or agent has authority to negotiate the final terms of the consumer transaction when that person does not have that authority; (p) the use of exaggeration, innuendo or ambiguity as to a material fact, or the failure to disclose a material fact, with respect to the goods or with respect to the consumer transaction; (q) where the supplier gives a consumer an estimate of the price of the goods, demanding from the consumer a price that is materially higher than the estimate unless, prior to providing the goods, the supplier has obtained the consumer's express consent to that higher price; (r) where the price of a part of the consumer transaction is given in an advertisement, display or representation, not giving in that advertisement, display or representation reasonable prominence to the total price of the consumer transaction; (t) a false representation as to the purpose of a charge or proposed charge; (u) a false representation or the use of exaggeration as to the benefits that are likely to flow to a consumer if the consumer helps the supplier to obtain new or potential customers.
