Originated in Oakville, "Chate" roughly describes a shitty deal or coming up short. The word's namesake was a student at OTHS (Oakville-Trafalgar Highschool) who was known to short-change you when dealing marijuana. It's primarily used by Oakvillians from the east side of town.

The word has come to mean something crappy, or a bad deal (usually for drugs). Originally, it was a guys name. I only met him twice, but it came from guys on his hockey team. His last name was Chater. If you fucked up, you were pulling a chater. It was most often shortened to chate. It then came to be used so much that it was a noun, a verb, and an adjective.
