The Ontario government has made important changes to auto insurance in the last coupleyears designed to bring down premiums. But claims costs are still increasing.
Too much of the money doesn't actually go to accident victims. Instead, it pays for other costs like legal fees, fraud and assessments by for-profit medical facilities.
This is too important to be left to special interests. We need informed legislation that speaks to the needs of all Ontarians.
It’s time for all of us – industry, government, policyholders, stakeholders, and members of the legislature – to unite and work together to do whatever is necessary to drive down claim costs.
And as the government committed to in its 2012 Budget, Ontarians deserve a better deal. A better system.
