Business offers vets free windshield treatment

Participating CARSTAR locations from across Canada, including Courtenay, are offering veterans, regular forces and reserved forces a free windshield treatment in honour of Remembrance Day.

Retired warrant officer Steve Ivankovic, with 21 years of service in various posts across Canada, welcomes gestures that local business owners offer to show their gratitude.

“Whenever members of the community take the time out to recognize the hard work and dedication of our soldiers, it’s very much appreciated,” Ivankovic said.

During November, veterans and active duty service members will have access to a free windshield treatment to help get their vehicles winter ready. The service is provided on a first-come, first-serve basis. The free windshield treatment is available with proof of Canadian Armed Forces service.

“Having been a CARSTAR franchise owner, I had the opportunity to participate in this program in my community and found it extremely rewarding,” says Jeff Labanovich, general manager, CARSTAR. “This is the least we can do for these heroic citizens who have done so much for us, and I hope this small token demonstrates our gratitude for those who have or currently are serving our country.”

The treatment forms a chemical bond to the glass causing rain to bead off the windshield. Dramatically improving visibility in the rain, sleet and snow, while also making it easier to remove ice and snow are some additional benefits to the windshield treatment.

CARSTAR Courtenay is at 2805 Kilpatrick Ave.
