I have spoken with my insurance company about how I would go about following the procedure described below for filing a claim, and have been told the following:
1. I CANNOT go through my insurance company to make this claim since it is NOT covered in my policy. This is because the damage is due to "earth movement" not coming as a result of fire, theft or explosion. None of the policies provided by Allstate would cover this situation, and therefore I would have to file a claim independently.
2. If you are lucky enough that your insurance company DOES cover this damage, you would likely be charged a "surcharge" on next year's policy since the insurance company has to follow-up with GO's insurance company, and negotiate a settlement. Therefore, it isn't necessarily true that your home insurance won't be affected by making this claim - your premium may not go up, but you will likely have to pay in some way for the service.
I just thought that I would forward this information along to the group.
Here’s some coverage of Tuesday’s Bubble Bash. There were actually about 35 of us inside the station, and then we paraded out (as planned) to the street. Thanks to everyone who came, and especially to Lisa Mann who choreographed us so elegantly. Her team is producing a short film on the flash mob, so stay tuned for that.
Thanks for your online message regarding construction of an underpass to separate GO commuter rail lines and Canadian Pacific (CP) freight trains along GO Transit’s Georgetown line. I appreciate the time you took to forward your comments.
As you may know, the federal government and our government each agreed to provide up to $385 million through the Canada Strategic Infrastructure Fund to support major GO Transit rail infrastructure improvements over seven years.
The new underpass along the Georgetown line will eliminate scheduling conflicts between CP freight trains and GO trains, increasing the frequency of GO service on the line. During rush hour, almost every seat on all GO trains is occupied. This expansion will enable GO to accommodate more than 40,000 additional passengers forecast to use the system during peak periods by 2011.
You may wish to view details about these improvements by accessing Transport Canada’s website at http://www.tc.gc.ca/mediaroom/releases/nat/2009/09-h018e.htm#bg.
Thanks again for contacting me. Please accept my best wishes.
