QUEEN’S PARK – This morning, the Wynne Liberals rolled out another “stretch goal” auto insurance announcement in the lead up to the 2018 election.
“If there’s one certainty here at Queen’s Park it’s this – this Liberal government has broken every promise it’s ever made on auto insurance,” said Ontario PC Finance critic Vic Fedeli during Question Period.
Before the 2014 election, Premier Kathleen Wynne promised to reduce auto insurance by 15 per cent; she later said this was nothing but a “stretch goal.”
“So many promises from this government, yet the average auto insurance premium in Ontario is still almost 55% higher than the average of all other Canadian jurisdictions,” he added.
Fedeli also pointed out that this was the fourth government announcement about establishing an anti-fraud office.
“Given this Liberal Government’s track record on auto insurance, why should anyone believe or trust them?” Fedeli asked the minister.
The Ontario PC’s recently released platform, the People’s Guarantee, contained a detailed plan to make the auto insurance system fairer, including eliminating geographic discrimination and cracking down on insurance fraudsters and uninsured drivers.
