Lots of new content and formatting changes!

  • Changed formatting of Alberta’s reciprocal licence agreements page.
  • Updated France’s reciprocal licence agreements page to include information regarding some Canadian and US provinces that seems to be newer than the French document regarding exchanges.
  • Added a whole new section, “The Case of Alberta and France,” that discusses not the general attitudes of each jurisdiction to reciprocal licensing, but the specific factors that come into play in regards to these two licensing jurisdictions.
    • Subsections include one discussing how the agreements can benefit both jurisdictions, and one discussing the reasons why this exchange agreement might not have included motorcycle licences when it was signed in 2008, and how reasons presented to me by the GoA don’t make sense as they don’t seem to apply to other jurisdictions with motorcycle exchange agreements (mainly, some US jurisdictions).
  • Added a new section to document my communication with governments.  So far, includes queries sent to GoA (and their answers) on December 1 and 5, 2016.
    • Will include letter being sent to the Embassy in Ottawa.  Because all matters with France seem to be federal, and the (seemingly out-dated) exchange list is prepared by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of France, they seem to be a good contact point for the French side of things… but the French MFA site says that if I’m abroad, I should contact my diplomatic mission.  As I have no idea who would handle this query, as it is a matter between provincial governments and the French public service, the letter shall be addressed to the Ambassador, politely asking to forward it to the relevant entity.

Gosh, this is why I have so little free time… but it is interesting!
