Canadian retailer version of Black Friday? #followfriday

Us Canadians have become more aware over the last few years of the American phenomenon known as Black Friday.  A result of the internet I guess.   To some extent we are puzzled by it.  The only thing we have to compare that to is Boxing Day sales - and we like to think that we are far more civilized, polite and happy about our early morning Boxing Day lineups.    I have noticed this year that some Canadian retailers seem to be following the Black Friday trend a bit - perhaps to capitalize on Canadian awareness of the US sales. 

On my porch yesterday, for example, was a Canadian Tire flyer pronouncing in large print that this Friday and Saturday is "Our biggest & best sale of the year!"   The only thing missing is a  Black Friday or Boxing Day sale label.
