Vancouver, British Columbia – Further committing to its promise to cut rates by 15 percent, the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) has announced that they will be launching an improved online estimator tool to help drivers track their savings.
British Columbia’s public safety minister, Mike Farnworth, says the tool is set to launch alongside the crown insurer’s new rate model, scheduled to take effect on May 1.
As well, Farnworth claims that most customers will be eligible to save an average of 20 percent, or $400 a year, in addition to a one-time refund.
Liberal critics remain unconvinced that without a date on when BC drivers will have cheques in their hands, it’s just another example of the NDPs “kicking empty promises down the road,” according to Mike Morris, Liberal MLA for the district of Prince George-Mackenzie.
“This is just another example of the John Horgan NDP failing to get people the relief they need,” said Morris in a statement.
