CBABC Position Paper on The Proposed ICBC Changes in Bill 20 and Bill 22

  • May 08, 2018

At this stage, the CBABC position is that the case for fundamental changes including statutory abrogation of the rights of injured citizens to full and fair compensation, because of uncontrollable costs has not been established. What has been established, however, is that the number of accidents occurring each year has been steadily increasing. The solution to that problem, however, is to look at and deal head-on with the causes of those increases.
