To the editor,

I enjoyed Bruce Wark's "Auto correction" (Upfront column, Mar. 12), on auto insurance in this province. As consumers who purchase car insurance in this province know, especially in Halifax, there are no "real" resources to help you when there are major issues. The government did nothing for insurance buyers except let rates go up. There are no rate controls, tax controls or rent controls here at all to protect and help consumers with this things. Tits on a bull would be more useful than powerless and useless boards who do nothing to help the average Joe here. Thank you, Bruce, for bringing this to light again. We need more coverage of greedy insurance companies, landlords and monopolized services in this province, or this government and its puppet boards will surely do nothing about them.
