Jeff Richert is absolutely right that young drivers – or anyone else seeking their driver’s license -- are on track to paying thousands more in ICBC premiums thanks to the NDP’s new risk rating system.
However, by placing the blame on the previous government, Richert is simply harping the NDP’s lame attempt to absolve themselves of any responsibility for ICBC increases since assuming office in 2017.
The fact is the NDP is far more interested in protecting a 46-year-old state run monopoly than introducing new players in the marketplace that would bring down rates through competition.
The NDP promised to make life more affordable. I know a whole generation of young people who would care to disagree.
