Statement from BC Liberal Critic John Yap on ICBC

BC Liberal Critic for ICBC John Yap says NDP seek to lay blame instead of accepting responsibility.

The BC NDP are trying to distract from the fact they are not taking action on the challenges ICBC is facing. The threat posed by rising claims and payouts is well-known and the previous government took steps to deal with the issue.

As well, a third-party review of ICBC was ordered by the BC Liberals and was delivered on July 10, so it was waiting on the desk of the new minister. Instead of taking the immediate actions the report called for, David Eby has done nothing for seven months except order another review.

It is clear the BC NDP made promises they can’t deliver on and so are looking to lay blame instead of accepting responsibility for that. David Eby has a blueprint for moving forward at ICBC but keeps delaying any action and is allowing the problem to grow even worse under his watch.
