The objectives of the CMMG are to involve all organized motorcycle groups and individual motorcyclists in Manitoba in a Coalition to:
- Promote the safety of motorcyclists by encouraging education and liaison with organized safety councils.
- Promote legislative reform and organize events with government officials and representatives.
- Disseminate information to aid in the continued safe enjoyment of two-wheeled motorized transportation.
- Intervene, as necessary, in Public Utility Board hearings into insurance rate applications.
Formed in 1993 by concerned motorcycle enthusiasts and dealers, to combat the steep insurance rate increases proposed by Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI).
A crown monopoly, such as MPI, is monitored and scrutinized by the Public Utilities Board. The pioneers of the CMMG took up the fight to bring the plight of Manitoba’s motorcycling industry to the forefront and began lobbying government, the MPI Board and the Public Utilities Board (PUB) as a registered intervener.
One of the initial successes achieved by the CMMG was having the PUB establish a “rate shock” threshold that forced MPI to restrict its rate increase requests to a maximum of 15-20%.Article Link: http://www.cmmg.org/welcome-to-the-cmmg-website/about-cmmg/
