Letter: ICBC needs real competition


I’m not surprised by ads ICBC is running about how private insurance companies are no good for B.C.

ICBC alleges any other insurance company is no good, will cancel your insurance at any time, and will not pay claims, etc.

ICBC is a typical government-run entity, with those in charge worried about jobs, bonsues and pensions.

ICBC is the only option for basic insurance and that makes it an unfair monopoly.

In addition, the fact ICBC collects taxes on used vehicles — on which taxes have already been paid — makes the Crown corporation the real thief in this province.

It is time to get rid of this inefficient, government-run corporation.
