ICBC should change its practices
Re: ICBC mishandled: Aug. 22
The outcry over the excessive management salaries at ICBC will at least oblige the corporation to change its practices. The fear of privatization is powerful. Having said that I continue to support a public insurance program.
The last time private insurance was trumpeted in British Columbia was around 2001. The topic seemed to disappear when in 2003 the Lord Government in New Brunswick was almost retired by the voters after private auto insurance rates increased 300 per cent. The provinces with public insurance were only minimally affected and the Campbell government avoided Premier Lord’s grief.
