Canadian subforum?

Hello! i'm overwhelmed with all the information available here, its incredible.

One suggestion i would have is a canadian sub-forum, just for organizing information specific to Canada. Resources, sellers, laws, etc. I've found a lot of posts from Canadians go unanswered due to most people being from America.

Specifically i've been looking for information about Ontario G licence, the 11,000kg limit, insurance, and, where to actually buy busses.

And I cant find any good auction sites like our freedom friends down south have.

Why not start a thread on the site that caters to folks in your country?

Even though the state I'm currently residing in borders Canada, it seems many Canadians come to the states to find a suitable bus as too many up north have rust issues.

Having said that, there are probably more solid busses to pick form in the BC area along the coast due to less salt/rust damage?

Good luck to you, going forward...

start a thread asking about Ontario licensing, you'll probably get replies. Don't make it for Canada because it'll get confusing with every different province chiming in like the Canadian insurance thread is. Call it "Ontario License Requirements" or something like that.

Edit: I reread your post. Probably make a thread for each individual thing, licensing, where to buy etc... the Canadian insurance thread is a little jumbled.

Our bus is about 10,000 kg but with air brakes. I had to do the course and test.
