2. Don’t expect a drop in car insurance prices anytime soon.
Attorney General David Eby says with ICBC only two months into its fiscal year they won’t know the “big picture” of just how much COVID-19 has affected the company until the end of the year.
“There”s the potential of a surplus because of public health orders that are keeping people off the road, to the potential of a significant deficit as a result of ICBC’s investments in the continuing collapse of the stock market.”
Eby says so far, there’s definitely been less car accidents on the roads due to COVID-19.
