My flatmate has the exact same one.
It is definitely a not-so-bad bike when you fix it up.
The brakes are really the crappiest I've ever worked on, I had to change them for a cheap pair of Sora+KoolStop.
The tires were constantly popping up the rim whenever there was a normal amount of pressure, so he also had to change them. When you account there's no bike service at Canadian Tire, if you don't have someone who can mess with it, you'll have to have a bike shop do a tune-up on it cause it ships with all the wrong adjustments.
One nice thing is it has all the eyelets to mount a rack and fenders.
