The B.C. Supreme Court has ruled that a lawsuit against the province and ICBC can proceed as a class action. The class action alleges that the province used ICBC to tax people for health-care costs illegally.

Scott Stanley is representing the plaintiffs. Scott told Global News, “If the lawsuit is successful, it could mean money for anybody that has bought insurance from ICBC going back to 1973.” The lawsuit alleges that the province has been taking money from insurance to pay for something that tax dollars already cover. As Scott notes, “Whatever the government says, the answer already is (it has) gotten that money from the federal government because all British Columbians have already paid that when they’ve paid their federal taxes.”
