ICBC needs shakedown

Whose wage or pension has a 12 per cent cost of living increase built in?

To the Editor,

We just received notice from ICBC that our car premium is going up by 12 per cent.

That this increase was approved by the BC Utilities Commission.

Claims are down but fees are going up.

What is wrong with this picture ?

Whose wage or pension has a cost of living increase built in of 12 per cent?

I can’t believe that a commission whose job it is to look out for us, whose salary is paid for by us, can just keep feeding the non democratic i.e. the private monster we call ICBC.

I would love to know how much the top dogs in ICBC and in the BC Utilities Commission make, but I don’t think my stomach can take the answer.

Come everybody. Stand up and be counted and tell them no.

And open the door to some competition.

Ruth John,

Port Alberni
