always park near Valet or near all the main entrance. You're asking for trouble if you park really far away.

I was in my car parked at shoppers *grocery store* and I was waiting for my mom and I see like 3 thuggish kids walking around the parking lot and I see them look into the car's trunk *suv tinted windows* next to me and I just wanted to run them over so badly.

my brother's E46 M3 was stolen from Yorkdale. He went into Indigo to get a magazine and came back 10 minutes later, the car was gone.
The car was never found.......

you are so right! they dont care! yorkdale has cameras in the parking lot but they dont cover the entire parking lot and if your car is stolen and you go to security, they won't do jack shit!

Make sure you post back because i think the magazine is pulling # out of their ass.

There are less than 12000 theft/year in Toronto, I can't see Yorkdale making up 30% of all car thefts in Toronto.
