A summer marketing campaign run by Coors Light Canada forced the closure of a major Toronto intersection during rush hour on Monday.

Streetcars were diverted and police were called after a briefcase was found attached to a metal railing (at Spadina Avenue and Dundas Street West).

It turned out the briefcase was part of a month-long challenge to find prizes using an online map and through clues from Twitter. A recent company news release said some 880 similar briefcases were to be hidden across the country during July as part of a promotion dubbed ”Search and Rescue.”

Cutter & Buck and Caulfeild Apparel Group Limited have agreed to end their Canadian license agreement after a 20 year business relationship. Cutter & Buck's parent company, New Wave Group, will be assuming management of the brand as of July 1, 2013, with a base of sales operations in a new showroom office in Toronto.

Ecorite, the Toronto-based supplier of environmentally friendly promotional products, announced an aggressive wave of price reductions providing customers savings on over 150 items in the line. The collection of eligible products represents about half of the styles currently available in Ecorite's line.
