Attorney general David Eby has written a letter to BC Liberal leader Andrew Wilkinson demanding he waive cabinet privilege so all documents from the former government relating to money laundering can be released.

The letter refers to Rich Coleman saying they did “everything they could” to stamp out money laundering.

How is insurance going to be calculated for a person who sometimes lends their car out to other family members?
If a person does not own a car, are they still accumulating "experience" for when they eventually do own a car and buy insurance?
