In November of 2003 after presenting a proposal to ICBC, the B.C. Coalition of Motorcyclists and Blair Lekstrom, M.L.A. Peace River South were told that transferable plates for motorcyclists were “doable” and would be available in January 2005. After sending out press releases to that effect the Coalition was then informed that with the take over of the B.C. Utility Commission as the new regulator of ICBC the deal was off.
The Transferable Plate Program consists of strict rules to which motorcyclists must adhere to be eligible, for further info go to www.bccom-bc.com. Over the winter we are going to be pushing very hard to try and make this happen. If you would like to see this program implemented please sign our petition to be presented to the Provincial Government, The Honorable John Les, Solicitor General and Minister of ICBC, and the Insurance Corporation of B.C.
The petition will be available at the BCCOM booth at the Vancouver Toy Run on October 7th. If you are unable to attend the Toy Run we will also have the petition available at different events that we are attending coming up, including the Vancouver Motorcycle Show, January 24-27 at the Tradex in Abbotsford. If you are not planning to attend either of these events yet feel that you could get 100 signatures or more in your community. Please let us know and we can send you the forms. Thank you for your support!
