To the editor,
Re: ICBC Problems an auto wreck, Editorial, Feb. 8.
There are so many things wrong that an audit is long overdue.
The money ICBC spends on their own lawyers is both ridiculous and uncalled for. Why should I have to sue my insurer to get them to do their job?
Having said that, why would the attorney general insist ICBC cap claims on soft tissue injuries and limit maximum payouts for death and serious injury? It would appear our government feels the taxpayers must pay for this shortfall. In one way I can see their point because who else has any money?
I have another suggestion; just put the $1.3 billion back into ICBC. Yes, the Liberals purloined it but that does not mean our present government gets to keep it. It seems everyone is totally ignoring this solution.
All the money the Liberals have ‘requisitioned’ from ICBC and B.C. Hydro has gone directly into general revenue; any of my funds that go to general revenue is a tax. Please tell me where I can claim my provincial tax credit for these monies of mine that were taken as a tax.
