Dear Bird Talk, We just renewed our RV insurance and were told we would have to pay a surcharge of 25% because we would be in the U.S. for more than 120 days and more than 200 miles from our border. On one hand, we can now be out of province for seven months, but […]

I have been following up with The Co-operators since the article in the winter magazine. They have been giving confusing information until finally, a policy was issued in late April. If anyone has a vehicle outside of your home province for more than 59 days, they will not be insured unless they pay an extra […]

Dear Bird Talk, I read with interest two letters in Bird Talk Fall 2008 Edition. The first by Stanley Knight. My comments on his story are as follows. I retired from the Air Force after 22 years. By chance, not design, I wound up in B.C., as I had one job to go to when […]

Vehicle Registration in Florida

Posted date : Nov 6, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, I reference the advice given to John & Debbie Chalmers in the spring 08 issue in the bird talk section. You stated that Florida requires an individual to have a Florida driver’s licence number in order to register a motor vehicle in their system. This has not been my experience. In late […]

Dear Bird Talk, Further to my conversation with Ellen White at the Texas Snowbird Show. As I explained to you at that time, I was informed by my trailer dealer to check with the insurance companies re: driving licence for large trailers.
