The Liberal MLA for Columbia River Revelstoke believes all parties need to work together to find a solution for the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia’s projected $1.3 billion operating loss.
Doug Clovechok admits he is disappointed after Attorney General David Eby blamed the crown corporation’s financial struggles on the previous BC Liberal government.
Eby referred to the situation as an “unnecessary crisis” and called it a “financial dumpster fire.”
Clovechok calls for a non-partisan committee of MLAs to be formed to dig into the issue.
Instead of pointing fingers, he suggests representatives from the Liberals, NDP, and Greens get to the bottom of what actually happened and what are the best solutions to preventing it from happening again.
The Member of the Legislature does concede there obvious problem with the insurance corporation under the watch of the BC Liberals.
It’s reported the Liberals rejected and eliminated recommendations made three years ago that would have restored ICBC’s financial footing.
The situation is dire and without action the Attorney General warned drivers in BC will face a 400 dollar rate hike to help the public insurer break even.
Clovechok says all politicians need to do what they can to prevent rates from going up for their constituents.
