People Before Profit meeting on car insurance in Listowel this evening

People Before Profit is holding a meeting about car insurance premiums in Listowel this evening.

The party believes Ireland should follow the example of the Canadian province of Manitoba, which has had a public not-for-profit insurance company since 1971 that provides cheap third-party car insurance.

Brian Finucane of People Before Profit will be the speaker at the event; he says car insurance premiums are far too high, with young, old and taxi drivers especially being hit hard.

The public meeting will be held at 7 o’clock tonight in the Family Resource Centre on the John B Keane Road, Listowel.
