If you are looking to get your hands on something for a wicked price, the Government of Canada is auctioning off a bunch of stuff that has either been seized or forfeited.

Sure you can bid on items from across Canada, but there are some neat things up for grabs right here in Alberta.

It can all be found on GCSurplus, an online site that sells surplus federal government assets, such as furniture, cars, trucks, boats, farm equipment, and more. It also lists forfeited goods from federal and provincial law enforcement agencies such as jewellery, collectors’ items, appliances, and large-volume materials, such as metal, wood, or textiles.
