WINNIPEG - George Johannesen can walk, talk, and the last time he checked, he had a pulse.

But according to Manitoba Public Insurance, the 59-year-old died sometime in October.

"I can't figure it out," he said.

The paperwork he received from MPI last week was addressed to "The Estate of George Johannesen" and informed him his drivers' license had been cancelled the previous month. Since then, he's apparently been driving without a valid license.
