Uh, other than Canada I do not see a location anywhere in the posting. If the shop has a website you need to post a link to that as well.

LOL Or maybe it was left out intentionally. I'm guessing that if you can't dig up a web address and check the company out before making an application - you'll probably fall short in a lot of the other requirements too.

But here's the preview spoiler.
