In the year since Sheridan Scott took over as Canada's competition watchdog, the federal agency has turned up the heat on major advertisers.

Since last January, the competition bureau has won a tribunal decision against Sears Canada Inc. and an out of court settlement against Forzani Group Ltd., the sportswear retailer that operates Sport Mart and Sport Chek.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, "Profiles in Courage"
