It’s a fact: drivers in Weston get gouged. I have a perfect record, and I pay $200 a month to insure my completely unremarkable car—more than $50 more than I would pay if I lived where my parents do.
Mike Sullivan will be hosting a town hall meeting to discuss why we pay so much, and why gas prices are so high. His guest will be Jagmeet Singh, Provincial NDP consumer affairs critic.
This meeting continues the NDP’s criticism of the insurance industry. In December of last year, the Ontario NDP launched a campaign to end the “12 per cent guaranteed profit rate for insurance companies [which] is based on a formula that hasn’t been updated since 1996.”
The meeting will be tomorrow, Thursday May 31 at 7:30 pm at Upwood Park/Salvador del Mundo Co-op, 298 Queens Drive (just east of Jane).
