WE NEED A STIGMA ABOUT TEXTING AND DRIVING

As I was driving to work the other morning, I noticed someone with their cell phone up to their face, texting away. It was so blatant it was hard to miss. It really caught my attention, and made me take a look around. Between Water St. and the Avalon Mall, I saw 5 other people either texting or with their cell phones up to the ear, deep in conversation. Using a phone without hands free operation is moving violation here in Newfoundland and Labrador, but my experience, and conversations with many others, gives me enough anecdotal evidence to say that this is one law that is completely disregarded.

CONSUMERS IN NEWFOUNDLAND SHOULD BE WORRIED

Around 10 years ago, insurance was a hot topic in Newfoundland. Rates had risen sharply, customers were upset, insurance reform was debated and the government introduced additional legislation which it hoped would help control costs, protect consumers and keep rates down. Since then, we've seen a relatively stable market for personal insurance. Coverage has been available at a reasonable cost, except for the most high risk scenarios. Prices for automobile insurance, while still by far the highest in Atlantic Canada, have continued to increase, but for most consumers, at a manageable level.
