So BCCOM wants to save ICBC from competing with private insurance if and when the government decides to allow private insurance companies to enter the auto/motorcycle insurance biz. I'm originally from Alberta and let me tell you that with private insurance you will save big time on motorcycle insurance. To give you an example; I pay now about $145 a month with ICBC on my ZX9R, in Calgary (where I have lived), I would be paying about $75 a month for same coverage (last checked, Arpil 2002). Now, I am over 25 and male so If you are younger and male you might pay more. However, in Alberta if you have taken an accredited driving/riding school then your insurance rate falls. In fact, if you have a safe driving/riding record, your rate might actually fall every year. So, what BS is BCCOM trying to pull. Well, I support and acknowledge what BCCOM has done for motorcyclists in this province but in this case they don't know what they are talking about. Check out their site http://www.bccom-bc.com/bccom.htm and read the some responce to this. I've lived in BC now for about 10 years so I have missed the days when BC had private insurance companies. From what I understand all was not well with the private insurance. Who's fault is that...the government of the time. I never had any problems, nor my family, nor friends with private insurance in Alberta. The government there has set sound rules that govern private insurance companies so that they cannot take advantage of the public. I for one will not support BCCOM on this.
