Due to Covid-19 restrictions CMMG was unable to hold its annual Motorcycle Safety Awareness Rally at the Manitoba Legislature and hear the Minister of Infrastructure Declare “May as Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month in Manitoba”
In Lieu of the Rally The Honourable Ron Schuler, Minister of Infrastructure has kindly agreed to provide the proclamation by video. This video should be on his Twitter account and on this CMMG Facebook site if I load it properly.
CMMG, successfully challenged Manitoba Public Insurance’s (MPI’S) rebate methodology and on May 1st, the Public Utilities Board (PUB) ruled that it would not be just and reasonable to exclude motorcycles from this rebate. The initial $50 million rebate would be available to motorcyclists, based on active policies during the 2019-20 fiscal year. Even though most seasonally adjusted policies in effect all year, MPI argued that they would not be eligible for the additional $60 million as motorcycle policies would not be “active” as of March 15 this year.
