Canadian Hockey Team

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

What do you think of when someone mentions Canada? For most, Canada represents 2 key words: “cold”, and “hockey”. The Canadian Hockey team is split up into three teams: men’s, women’s, and juniors.

All teams represent Canada in various international competitions throughout the course of the hockey season. With the love and passion for the sport of hockey in Canada, it is no surprise that in most cases the Canadian squad is one of the most talented in the World.

Some analysts believe that Canada could put together two different squads in a competition and both would still be on the medal podium at the end of the day.

The year 2010 could go down as a historic year for Hockey Canada and their Canadian fans. Come December 2009 (and ending in January 2010), the Team Canada Juniors team will face the toughest teams from around the world at the World Junior Hockey championship.

This World Junior tournament is being held in Regina, Saskatchewan this year, and will certainly bring a lot of Canadian fans to watch. Team Canada has won the event the past 5 season, and many people believe a 6th championship is not out of the question.

Following the World Junior tournament, the world will be focused on the 2010 Olympic Games being held in Vancouver, British Columbia in February 2010. With the Olympics being held in Canada, there will be extra eyes surrounding the two competing Canadian hockey squads.

The Team Canada Mens, and Womens teams will be looking to take gold medals in what expects to be a very loud and noisy crowd of Canadian fans. The Women’s team will be looking to repeat as Olympic champions while the men’s team will be looking to avenge a disappointing 7th place finish in Turin. The rosters for both squads will be named on December 31st.

One of the best aspects of competitions involving Canadian hockey teams is the passion and unity that Canadian fans display. It really is second to none! Even international tournaments that occur across the world are attended very well by Canadian fans. One of the best ways to display Canadian passion is by wearing a Team Canada Jersey.

These jerseys can be worn at home, at work, or when watching Canada games with friends. Other ways of showing off your Canadian pride and passion is with other Team Canada Apparel. Throughout the country you will see many people wearing Maple leaf shirts, jackets, hats, and even scarves.

If Canada comes away with gold medals in the World Junior Tournament, Men’s Olympics, and Women’s Olympics, it will probably represent the greatest hockey achievement of any country in the world. To do it on home soil would be very special..

How To Get Cheap Auto Insurance In Canada

Friday, June 8th, 2012

If you live in Canada and you drive then you are going to need some kind of auto insurance to ensure you are not breaking the law. It is a legal requirement but in each province there can be subtle changes as to what is required so care has to be taken to be sure you have everything that is required. So here are some tips on how to get the cheap auto insurance in Canada.

1. Compare the rates

Remember how consumers are always educated on shopping around before buying anything to get the best deal? We often shop around and compare prices before we buy our clothes, cars or even houses.

However, when this comes to buying auto insurance, we would just pay whatever rates offered by insurance companies. This is because we often thought that the rates are same between companies. This is totally a false belief as the rates between companies can vary as much as $1000 sometimes! You will never get cheap auto insurance in Canada if you do not put any effort to compare the prices. Therefore, start going around and research the companies before you take up any policies.

2. Raising deductibles

A deductible is the amount of the claim that we have to pay before our insurance company pays the rest if we are involved in an accident. We usually take the lower deductible because we do not want to pay so much when we file claims.

However, when you opt for lower deductible, you will get higher premiums that cause you to pay more than the amount of a higher deductible. This is because we do not involve in accidents every single day. So why not pay higher deductible to save more money in the long run?

3. Be careful when you drive

Accidents are unavoidable but we can prevent it from happening. When you are involved in more accidents and get a lot of speeding tickets, all these go into your driving record and leave some bad marks there.

When insurance companies review your application for auto insurance, they will look at your driving record first. If you do not have a clean driving record, it is hard for you to secure cheap auto insurance in Canada.

4. Discounts

Get all the discounts that you are applicable for and cheap auto insurance in Canada is sure to be yours. Most of the time, insurance companies do not give out the discounts without you asking for them. If you know you are eligible for certain discounts like multi-policy discounts, open your mouth and ask from your insurance company or you will lost the chance to secure cheap auto insurance in Canada..
