Stewart The Bear’s story

Written by on 2/21/2011 10:00 AM . It has 0 Comments.

Stewart the Bear joined our team in 2003. Named in recognition of company founder Stewart Morrison, his role with the firm started simply as a goodwill gesture.

The original concept was to provide a blue teddy bear to clients of the firm who experienced personal trauma, such as an automobile accident or like difficulty. Our rationale behind the selection of a teddy bear was simple. Teddy Bears are revered possessions in most households. They can bring a smile to young and old alike. Their popularity is not diminished by time and they know no racial, religious, or ethnic boundary. They represent a certain caring and purity that is timeless.

If you own a home oil tank…

Written by on 2/18/2011 10:00 AM . It has 0 Comments.

Leaks and spills from home-heating oil tanks are dangerous and costly. One litre of leaked oil can contaminate one million litres of drinking water. The clean-up costs related to oil spills average $250,000 – $500,000 (but the costs can be, and often are, much higher than that) and can include everything from replacing the tanks and supply lines and removing contaminated soil around your home to replacing your home’s foundation.

If there is a spill or leak of oil from your property, you could be entirely responsible for all these costs. No one needs that expense or hassle. Check with your insurance representative to find out about your coverage.

Auto reform and you

Written by on 2/17/2011 10:00 AM . It has 0 Comments.

The reforms will give you more options for both coverages and the price you pay for auto insurance. Specifically, additional accident benefit choices will permit you to tailor your policy to best suit your personal needs.

While the Insurance Act in Ontario sets guidelines for the standard coverage consumers must purchase, you will have options to purchase different levels of coverage. For all consumers purchasing a new auto insurance policy or renewing an existing policy certain coverage requirements will remain unchanged. Third-Party Liability, Uninsured Auto coverage, Direct Compensation – Property Damage, and Statutory Accident Benefits are still mandatory requirements. As such, they will be in every auto insurance policy. Additionally, if you purchased Collision and / or Comprehensive coverage, it will still be included in your policy.
