Yeah I'm the same CrazyTrain, I have only been out that way a few times before. The furthest I usually go in that direction is Brandon but if I remember right it's nice country down where you are. Still nice to know I'm not the only one in our part of the world that likes FS

I keep forgetting to ask you Canadian guys this: do you have to get your vehicle inspected every year? Maybe you guys have told me and I just forgot. If I were to move up in Canada, I don't think I would pass the inspection with the truck or the car. If I were to move to Canada some day.

You have to get it inspected before you can register and insure it but once it passes safety inspection you don't have to keep doing it. Then if you decide to sell it it has to be safetied before the next person can register it. If you are running a truck and register it for a GCVW of more than 10000LBS you have to have it inspected every year.

Well within Canada, say you were moving from one province to another, all you have to do is take it to an inspection shop and once it passes you are good to go, but it must be safetied before you can register it. I wish it was one country-wide inspection but unfortunately it varies from province to province so you would have to get it done within the province you plan on living in. The inspection itself is pretty standard I think probably similar to what you would have to do where you are....tires, front end, brakes, windshield, suspension pretty much the basic things that could fail and be unsafe. Coming in from the US could be a little different, you may want to check with an insurance broker in the province you plan on moving to, and you would probably have to pay the provincial tax on the book value of your truck.

Oh ok. Thanks for the information.
In Iowa, we don't have to do any inspections whatsoever, so that's why I wouldn't know anything about this "inspection" stuff. Once we buy a vehicle, we transfer the title, get plates for it, registration/insurance etc. and that's it. I do appreciate you telling me this. I hope the safety inspection wouldn't check for airbags...
It's funny how Trudeau is so popular with people from other countries..... but here in reality he is terrible IMO! He is running us into a huge deficit that we will be repaying for generations. He's spending money like the trust fund baby that he is, bringing in huge amounts of immigrants that are draining our healthcare and social programs. Forcing an unneeded carbon tax on us, crippling our economy with his stupidity....I could go on but you get the picture..... you'd be just trading one poison for another.....
the new standard for testing a mod is about 2 weeks. needs to fail testing twice before it passes so your looking at a 6 week time frame before a mod passes testing. then it goes for console testing lol. I'm kidding. a bit. Maybe if they weren't testing 15 different things at a time.....
