ANGUS, ON, July 20, 2018 /CNW/ – Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) members of Local 313 working at the Ontario Tree Seed Plant, along with community members who want to keep the plant open and public, will hold a barbecue to encourage participation in a ministry review of the closure.

 

Last spring, the Liberal government announced it would close the plant – the only one of its kind in Ontario. On July 18, Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) Minister Jeff Yurek announced a review of the decision to close the plant through consultation with stakeholders and other interested parties.

Ontario Tree Seed Plant workers extract, store, clean, test and distribute billions of tree seeds to nurseries, forestry companies, government tree-planting programs and individual consumers.

The Best Way To Compare Car Insurance Prices

LOS ANGELES, July 21, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Compare-autoinsurance.org has released a new blog post that explains how to use car insurance quotes and compare rates.  

Car insurance can be an expensive investment. But it would be even more financially demanding not to have one and cause an accident. In order to obtain a balance between costs and the quality of services, clients are advised to get car insurance quotes and compare prices. Now, they can use a single website, http://compare-autoinsurance.org, to obtain price estimates from multiple insurance companies.

Car insurance companies determine premiums differently. This is why there are high price variations between companies for the same insurance product. Each company has its own algorithm to calculate premiums and some factors are more important than others for each insurer. For example, the value of the car will be more important for a company than the next company, which prioritizes driving history.

Car insurance quotes are used to get price estimates.  The client must answer a series of questions related to the car, driving history and coverage options. By answering a questionnaire, the client will be able to see what he will have to pay, on average, for auto insurance. Of course, a questionnaire does not cover all aspects. For example, not all questionnaires ask certain aspects which can help the client get some discounts.

Online car insurance quotes are the best price comparison tools. Instead of calling an agent or actually visiting insurance companies, clients can now customize a quote form and obtain free quotes online. Using extensive online forms will ensure that the quotes are more accurate. 

“Using online car insurance quotes will help drivers compare prices and get a coverage plan truly beneficial for their needs and budget “said Russell Rabichev, Marketing Director of Internet Marketing Company.

Compare-autoinsurance.org is an online provider of life, home, health, and auto insurance quotes. This website is unique because it does not simply stick to one kind of insurance provider, but brings the clients the best deals from many different online insurance carriers. In this way, clients have access to offers from multiple carriers all in one place: this website. On this site, customers have access to quotes for insurance plans from various agencies, such as local or nationwide agencies, brand names insurance companies, etc.
