Liberal M-L-A Sticks By Claim That Drivers In Province Are Being Gouged

Drivers in the province have paid 900 million dollars more for their auto insurance than they should have over the last ten years. That claim being made by Moncton East M-L-A Chris Collins who tells CHSJ News that works out something like 150 to 174 dollars more for their car than they should be.

Collins wants to see the New Brunswick Insurance Board disbanded because he doesn't think it's looking out for the best interests of consumers. 

He tells CHSJ News the job it does could be taken over by a new more non-partisan body or the Energy and Utilities Board. 

Provincial Justice Minister Troy Lifford doesn't see a problem with what drivers in New Brunswick pay for auto insurance, saying the rates are lower than in other provinces.
