Province of British Columbia
Program: 7:45 - 8:45 a.m.
Hon. David Eby
With ICBC confronting a loss of $1.3 billion this fiscal year, Attorney General David Eby has announced an ambitious strategy to get the corporation back on track with fundamental changes to the auto insurance system. The changes will increase the care for those injured in a car crash and provide more affordable rates, with less spent on legal costs.
Attorney General Eby will speak to the Greater Vancouver business community about the work underway by the B.C. Government and ICBC to address the current challenges.
