    Insurance reform is a big job because there are lots of broken parts that need to be fixed. To do this requires political will and a strong upwelling of public support (organized public support). The conditions for reform don't exist - and they won't until there's a champion in government and an upswelling of public support.

    I'm no expert, but there has to be something wrong when I pay $2250/month for 2 big bikes in Ontario. In the Florida, the same insurance cost me $675US.

    There's obviously more to that difference than just fraud. There's no way fraud eats up 70% of our insurance payments.
    The odd times I felt I'd approached the truth, it rested on the premise that people are essentially good and smart.

    How do we keep tolerating this crap. Get elected and do nothing until an election is on the horizon and your job is at risk and then come up with a plan. If you get elected again the plan becomes dishwater.

    Fraud over a billion $$ a year isn't news.

    Establish a Serious Fraud Office...................you mean a police department????

    Victims are getting screwed, not news.

    Sigh
    Its called democracy

    every 4 years we elect a handful of people who are under corporate and bank control.

    We then empower the handful of people we elected to make decisions on our behalf for the next 4 years without consulting with us

    Outside of the criminal act there is a limit to our PT benefits. If I needed something down the road I would have to pay it.

    If the conservatives ran a campaign where the leader just kept their mouth shut they would probably get in, but they always pick someone that opens their mouth and stupid falls out. And people are still frightened by the NDP, so Liberals keep getting in by default. McGuinty & Wynne prove(d) that they can do pretty much whatever they want as long as they put up a front that they have any idea of what they are doing

    I am sure he's not paying 2250$/month ... but rather per year. Secondly, comparing Florida rates with Markham/Ontario rates is like saying dollar is a dollar whether you call it US$ or C$ ... right? We have been over it thousand times here at GTAM .... someone has to pay for the "free" medical coverage one gets up here vs. down there. That is not to say that Ontario rates are high, definitely are, but to expect to pay the same what US riders pay, is un-realistic non-sense. Apples to Oranges ....

    I have no idea what the rates are like in Alberta ... but I'd expect lower. Hard to compare though GTA with Calgary .... sticks to sticks Alberta is probably still lower, since fraud is % of that, it's lower as well $-wise ... I am going to take a guess and say that their rates will be 30% lower on average.
