During the event, golf ball-size hail smashed windows of houses and automobiles and damaged patio furniture as well as home facades. Corn and vegetable crops were ruined during the brief but robust storm. Farms and sheds sustained damage from the tornadic winds as well as trees. This very region was hit by 5 tornadoes during the summer of 2001, including some of the region's main cities such as Saguenay (Saguenay, Quebec) and Alma (Alma, Quebec). Tornadoes are considered to be rare occurrences in this region, at least prior to 2001. Tornades Stations not owned and operated by Corus Entertainment can also be affiliates, such as CKRS-FM 98.3 in Saguenay (Saguenay, Quebec), CFYX-FM 93.3 in Rimouski, CHNC-FM 107.1 in New Carlisle (New Carlisle, Quebec) and CFGT-FM 104.5 in Alma (Alma, Quebec). CHRC (CHRC (AM)) 800 AM in Quebec City was previously part of the Corus Québec network, but the station was sold in 2008 by Corus to a group of local businessmen; it no longer has any links with Corus. CKRS-FM was sold in November 2010 to a local group, Radio Saguenay; it is unknown if any Corus Québec programming still airs on that station. There are also accusations that Walmart Canada has engaged in some practices that discourage associates from exercising their right to join a union (labor union) and negotiate a collective bargaining agreement. Wal-Mart closed their Saguenay, Quebec store, in April 2005 after workers unionized and just days before contract settlement by binding arbitration, putting 190 employees out of work. Wal-Mart argued that the store wasn’t profitable and the Supreme Court of Canada affirmed 6-3 on November 27, 2009 that the company had the legal right to close the store. Wal-Mart also closed its automotive centre in Gatineau , Quebec, after employees unionized and an arbitrator imposed a 33 per cent wage increase. At Saint-Hyacinthe Wal-Mart, the 200 employees had organized successfully in January 2005 but contract negotiations stalled and an arbitrator was called in, finally reaching a two-year deal on April 9, 2009.
