For years, the Quebec government has had a reputation of being anti-motorcycle. Now, some motorcyclists are pushing back.
CBC is reporting a group of Quebecois motorcyclists have launched a $100-million lawsuit against the provincial insurer.
According to the story, Michael Mosca, the president and founder of the Motorcyclist Movement of Quebec, says riders are being discrminated against unfairly; Mosca claims licensing fees have gone up 400 per cent since 2008.
Mosca’s group represents 8,000 motorcyclists in Quebec.
A spokesperson for the provincial insurer (the SAAQ) says they’re surprised to hear of the lawsuit, because they’ve actually been able to lower some motorcycle insurance premiums recently.
