I'm picturing lumberjacks up the wazoo. Guys who climb and fall trees for a living.

Foresters are mostly old-ish skinny people that look uncomfortable in collared shirts but wear them anyways and are apparently tanned for life.
Loggers look exactly like any equipment operator anywhere in industry (its pretty much all done with big ol machines in this part of the world)


The dusty as uckfay cowboys are the top of the heap. Somehow always dusty even in a rainstorm. Yellow teeth from smoking looseys. Bow legs for real. Plaid and sheepskin for miles. Always driving dirty old diesel duallys with the windows rolled down blasting croon-country and blues.
What man put together, man can rend asunder and then also put it together sometimes what's all this left over stuff

You have to respect our cultural heritage. There is a rich and delightful spectrum from white trash to white trash in collared shirts.

And people say white people don't have culture....

Try again sweetie.


Side note last weekend out at farewell canyon we had a guy ride up to us that looked exactly like the photo below except all his tack was embossed with little designs and his mustache was bigger and tell us "you boys know this here's private property? Shouldn't be riding bikes out here... Company don't like it much".

Two questions: is the used car market better in BC, and if so, do you have a spare couch?

This is no longer applicable to a private sale for a car being taken out of BC.

The government would probably spend more in trying to get taxes out of me than they'd ever get back for the average value of the boiled turds I drag home.

If you buy a car in BC and drive it back to AB, get an OOP done and register it in AB, do you then avoid paying the PST? I was always curious about that, but this link didn't mention it.

You just have to provide proof of your Alberta residency at time of purchase and the PST should be waived up front.

Semi-related question. I have a relative giving a sibling of mine a free car. They're in BC, we're in AB. I'm picking it up, and they're selling it to us for $1. We're going to tow it back, so I don't have to worry about insurance/plates until we're here, but will I still need to pay PST on $1? Will someone harass me about that?

I would swim to the bottom, and drink my way up.
But the sea isn't vodka, and I'm not a duck.
So give me the vodka, and stfu.
If you're having forum problems, I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but your post ain't one.

Couldn't you just get an in-transit permit to drive it back to Alberta and do all the inspection stuff after?

yes but what hes asking is different.
Im not actually sure on how exactly it works. Intuition tells me you should be able to bring an Alberta (aka super weak) transfer of ownership paper with you, get it filled out , bring the car back to alberta, then complete the registration here (part of which will be getting the OOP complete)

How I did it varies because I had to drive mine back to AB
-go to BC (make sure its not sunday!)
-Bring completed transfer of ownership papers to ICBC (I was advised to put $100 on the sale and pay the $7 pst, as gifts only fly if it is a family member.)
-Pay to get the car registered in my name. In BC, byou dont need to pay yearly to have the car "registered". It just always is yours and they dont delete it from the database. I think theres a fee to transfer it over.
-They will print off a proof of ownership from ICBC
-I then bought a transit insurance for 1 day and drove it back
-Once in AB i got insurance, then got OOP, then registered.

It hasn't started in 5 years, so we'll be towing it.

Could you not bring a license plate with you, put it on the car you buy, drive home and then get the OOP etc done in AB? My insurance lady has always told me I can put my personal plate, regardless of the car I have it registered to, on a car I buy, and I have 2 weeks grace period to get it registered. I do need insurance, but that's a VIN and phone call away. But this has always been within AB, not sure if things change between provinces.

Only if you sell a car, and the plate/insurance are valid. I didn't sell a car, and I didn't have a plate for it.
