I always made up for my payments but now I get a registered letter saying I'm cancelled. So offensive. Not even a grace period of a couple of months to pay. They don't care about working with you, only your money.

We were with Canadian Direct Insurance since 1998 right up until they were bought by Intact-belairdirect a few years ago, at which point our premiums went up by about 15% almost immediately. Both my wife and I haven't had a single claim in over 20 years together, and yet somehow belair decided to do a credit check on us without permission after all those years of clean driving. Ridiculous!
