Richmond Hill, Ontario – Sales of new cars and trucks fell in all provinces in December 2008 when compared to December 2007, with British Columbia registering the most dramatic drop, according to industry analyst Dennis DesRosiers.
“A rough month of December for every province, with some provinces in a near free fall,” DesRosiers said. “Sales for B.C. were down 31.3 per cent, Ontario down 24.8 per cent, Alberta down 23.9 per cent, and all others very weak. For year-end sales, the best-performing provinces were Newfoundland, up 11.7 per cent, and Saskatchewan, up 7.9 per cent on the year.”
Sales for December 2008 were as follows:
|Province||December 2008||December 2007||Change %|
