Several other provinces have public auto insurance - but Ontario does not. This is one reason why we have the highest car insurance rates in the country.
If someone is injured or disabled in an accident, we end up paying most of the cost of health care for them, and possibly they will qualify for ODSP, EI, Workman's Comp or CPP Disability Benefits.
We should have public auto insurance to get the cost saving found in other provinces. We need not include the cost of collision or comprehensive insurance for the cost of replacing or repairing cars - we can add that later, but liability for personal injury should be part of a public insurance scheme
