Is it legal in Canada to have 2 non-overlapping insurance policies on the same vehicle?

I recently acquired a RHD vehicle and my current company will only offer basic PL &- PD. However I'-d like to get Fire &- Theft to protect my investment. Currently my insurance is about $440 a year, but if I get PL &- PD from a company that will also do Theft coverage, the lowest quote I can find is nearly double that at $850 a year (+ the theft coverage @ $50/yr).Is it possible for me to get my PL &- PD from my current company, and get the Fire &- Theft from the other company?


It depends on which province you live in, but in the vast majority of provinces no one is going to issue a policy with just fire and theft coverage. In provinces with private insurance schemes (Ontario, Alberta, N.S. etc) obtaining coverage for a right hand drive vehicle is difficult as insurers loathe these types of vehicles. If you live in a province with government run auto insurance (B.C., MB, Saskatchewan) it's not a big issue.

Can my bank charge an overdraft fee if they never paid out on it?
Demand that the banker show you the FDIC rule. It's probably true. Banks (Feds) write the rules and Congress approves them (to get campaign funds for re-election). Some banks charge for talking to a real live teller. Give them time, they will charge you for breathing their oxygen. They...
