I was also looking for suggested reading and completely understand the reasoning behind just enjoying this time, but I’d also like to read some thought-provoking books and even better if they are related to law or the justice system. Any suggestions would be welcomed!
I’m currently finishing Had It Coming by Robyn Doolittle. She was the journalist that broke the Rob Ford crack story and in this book looks at the #metoo movement and the justice system in Canada. It’s a surprisingly “quick read” given the subject matter is heavy.
Another book I read years ago but really enjoyed is Dancing Naked in the Mind Field but Kary Mullis. It isn’t specific to law and does go a little conspiracy-theory at times, but he critically looks at everything we think we know. He won Nobel prize in chemistry in the 90s for his work on DNA replication but is the opposite of a stereotypical chemistry genius and is more of a surfer dude who talks about dropping acid.
Anyone else got some suggestions?
I am planning to move to Victoria (assuming BC Ferries hasn't become just a big fleet of hospital ships by next month), and trying to plan for how to manage our vehicles.
We have one car that we will keep using (so, obviously registering it and insuring with ICBC), and another one that we won't be using but which my spouse won't let me get rid of. I'm trying to figure out what I need to do with the second vehicle and what it will cost me.
1) If I'm insuring a stored vehicle for theft/damage but not driving it, do I still need to go through ICBC because it's technically an auto policy, or could it just be covered under property insurance?
2) If the answer to #1 is that it is still ICBC, then will I need to get a licence plate even if I have no intention of driving it? That is, would coverage for theft/damage only still require "registration" in BC?
3) Any idea what premiums are like for stored vehicles? I know that BC has really high auto insurance rates, but I'm hoping most of that comes from the liability portion.
4) Is it ok to store an unregistered vehicle in a driveway, or is there some regulation that says it has to be locked away, not adjacent to a street, etc., if it's not insured to be on the road? We will likely be renting a house, so I would rather use "free" driveway storage than pay to store it.
Thanks for any insight,
PS I hope that, given the minor regulatory nature of these questions, that this doesn't sound like a request for "legal advice". I am really just asking for insurance "information". If I've crossed that line.... sorry mods!
