Subject: Vehicle laws in Canada

Hi guys,

I need some help with an up coming fic. Could someone in canada or who knows
about this tell me...Do cops come up and ask for License and registration
papers like they do in the states?

In NZ we have only our drivers License on our persons. The vehicle must have
visible on its windscreen, a current warrant of fitness(mechanical check)
and a current registration(road tax) otherwise it's an instant fine. Plus
license plates both front and rear.
Having watched far too much US TV;) I know what is required in the US but
have no idea about Canada.
Can anybody help me?

Well if you're looking for Screed fic you should mosey on down to the Rat
Patrol page  (in case anyone doesn't know that's the Tracy/Screed site...
yes Tracy and Screed... don't laugh! ;-)

Anyway, we have over 20 fics archived there, (and more coming all the
time. Go Tracy/Screed! Woohoo! <eg>)  you can ask the authors about
archiving them on the Screed site too.  Oh, if you get a chance I'd love
a link from the SCreed site to the RatPat site too, it's already linked
the other way 'round :)

Oh, the link might help huh? ;-)

Okay everyone, this is a really great idea!  You all reminded me of all your
wonderful stories, and I thank you.  I am very excited about this years
awards because this is the first time I will be participating as a writer.
All my stories are new, so none will be in the historic category.

1)  "Hope"  The story of Daniel from "Father Figure," and a cure.
2)  "Lightning Always Strikes Twice"  A pre-"Last Knight" story.
3)  "The Path Not Taken"  A ancient candle stick allows each character to
have their wish granted.

4)  A Poem-  "You Could Have Said I Love You Just Once"

All can be found at Mel's spectacular site: www.fkfanfic.com

I wish all the writers the best of luck.  This is a contest in which we all
win.  And I strongly encourage everyone to participate by reading the
wonderful list of nominations and by voting.

Subject: FYI:  Webmistress going on Vacation!!

Feel free to forward:

This applies to those participating in the 1999 Fan Fiction Awards
as well as those trying to contact me via webmistress@f.......
or fkarchiver@f..........

I'm going on a much-needed, long-overdue  vacation starting NOW
until Thursday (March 2).  (Woohoo!!!!!)

I probably won't have easy access to email during this time, nor do
I plan to spend time checking my email (I work on computers all
day and most of the night now, so I really want a break from them!).

Thus, be patient when sending me email, signing up for Voter Ids,
etc. about the Awards or www.fkfanfic.com in general. I'll get to it
as soon as I can and/or when I get back.

If this impacts the Awards, I will consider updateing and extending
the various deadlines for nominations, etc.

Thanks and take care all!

Subject: Looking for Sonja Launspach

Howdy everyone!

Lynne and I did "The Tour" for Sonja Launpach about a year and a half ago.
We corresponded a little bit after that, but because of my astounding
stupidity (err, I mean "The Speed O'Will"), it took me over a YEAR to
compose a reply to a note that she wrote _last_ February.

Oddly, in that note, she mentioned getting an acceptance letter at another
university, hence the obvious reason for my letter having just _bounced_.
Doh!  So, Sonja, if you're on the list, please say yoohoo to me, or if
someone knows Sonja, please drop me a line off-list.  Thanks!

What are the circumstances?

Ie. During road blocks (DD campaigns) they just make sure
the insurance sticker is right and ask to see your license.
For speeding they just send a bill to whoever the
registered owner is (photoradar).
For accidents you must show registration and license. I'm
sure that if circumstances are right (suspicious behaviour
on part of the driver or something) they have authority to
ask to see registration.

Anyone know someone who works at an MVB (Motor Vehicles

 (no expert on specific policy, but who does drive around
ALOT...oh there *might* be minor differences from
muinicipality to municipality, but if you are dealing RCMP
it's the same X Canada.)

Hmm. Now, a certain buzz cut is about to be pulled over for speeding...gets
all uppity...as he does...and the cop hits him for any and all infringments
he can.
<eg> (buzz is in a position where he can not just take care of it in his
ususal way;))

Thanks for all the help guys!
