While numbers for 2017 are yet to be released, Statistics Canada reported just under 79,000 motor vehicle thefts in 2016. While the number sounds high, that's 217 per 100,000 residents or 0.217 percent. Theft rates are also declining. In 1996, the number was over 500 per 100,000 residents.

BMW unleashes M3’s inner speed freak with CS edition

  BMW unleashes M3’s inner speed freak with CS edition BMW's limited edition M3 CS is equal parts track weapon and daily driverWhy does it matter? Because there are just not enough cars on the road that, courtesy of state-of-the-art M TwinPower Turbo technology and a 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder engine, can accelerate to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and top out at an electronically limited 280 km/h. And, ensuring that the CS is not just a demon at the Stoplight Grand Prix, its suspension largely mirrors that of the M3 with Competition Package. It’s also fitted with Adaptive M suspension, meaning it will perform both on the road and on the track.

The Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC) has published its latest list of the most stolen vehicles in Canada , a collection that proves the saying the more things change, the more they stay the same. Following a trend that began in 2014

Top spot this year goes to the 2015 Lexus GX460. The luxury off-roader topped the list for the first time. After that, it's Ford pickups. Four-wheel drive F-350s take spots 2-7, as well as ninth. The 2006 F-250 comes in tenth. Another surprise, in eighth spot, was the 2016 Toyota 4Runner.

Last year, Alberta saw the Super Duty take all ten spots. This year, the 2000 Honda Civic coupe adds the only variety, in ninth place.

Ontario saw the Toyota 4Runner in first, second, and ninth. 2016, 2015, and 2014 model years respectively. Unlike Alberta, Ontario thieves like their GM trucks. The 2006 Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon, 2003 Chevy Avalanche, 2005 Tahoe/Yukon, and 2006 Silverado/Sierra 2500 took third through sixth, with the 2003 Hummer H2 grabbing seventh. No Fords made Ontario's list.

Having your car stolen is a pretty big ordeal regardless of its size or value, but the fact remains that some models continue to attract thieves more than others, namely Ford trucks and expensive SUVs. Just look at the Insurance Bureau of Canada ’ s (IBC)

Here' s a list of the most - stolen vehicles from all model years: 1. 1997 Honda Accord. 2. 1998 Honda Civic. Click here to see the NICB' s full report and an interactive map showing the most popular stolen cars by state.

Quebec saw more 4Runners in the top two spots, followed by the four-door 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Lexus RX crossovers took three of the remaining places on the list. That's actually fewer 4Runner appearances than last year's five.

As with the last few years, the Atlantic provinces saw some of the strangest cars on the list. Like the 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer with all-wheel drive taking top spot. Then it was the 2003 Ram 2500, 2002 Ford Explorer, and 2000 Volkswagen Jetta.

The numbers are based on the frequency of vehicle theft claims for each model and year. IBC doesn't have stats for British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, or the territories.

The IBC pointed out to us that in most auto thefts, the car is recovered. Those thefts are normally crimes of opportunity, where one person steals the car because they need a ride. It's then likely used by two or three other people, used by them to commit other crimes. Then the vehicle is dumped, where it is recovered.

The other type of theft, which represents about 40 percent of thefts in Ontario, is from organized crime. Those thefts can mean a number of things for your stolen vehicle. Some are disassembled for parts, which are resold. Some are shipped overseas, where they are resold. But some get their VIN removed, replaced by one from another vehicle that may have been scrapped or was not economical to repair. Those disguised vehicles are then resold to buyers who may one day find out that their new car was actually stolen.

Tips to keep your car where you left it are still simple. Lock your car with the windows up and don't leave it running. Park in well-lit areas. And don't leave valuables in plain sight.

Will Self-Driving Trucks Steal Jobs? .
It's not quite a yes or no answer.I recently spoke with Chuck Price, the vice president of product for TuSimple, a startup that is developing technologies for self-driving trucks. I asked Price what he'd tell someone concerned about safety and widespread job-loss as they relate to the autonomous technology his company is working on.
