Several Ottawa customers of Ace of Blades have filed small claims lawsuits against the snow removal company, alleging poor service.

CBC Ottawa published a story last week after some customers came forward with complaints against the company.

The Better Business Bureau has a consumer alert on the company and had assigned it an F rating as of January 2015.

The owner of Ace of Blades, Grant Van Den Heuvel, refused to do a recorded interview, but in a phone conversation accused the media of unfairly tarnishing the reputation of his company and threatened legal action.
