Eby wants 'full disclosure'

Attorney General David Eby wants to release documents he says show how the former Liberal government could have acted to prevent financial chaos at ICBC.

"The public deserves transparency about the decisions that were taken and not taken by the BC Liberal government in relation to this financial crisis at a public company," David Eby told CTV News.

Eby's office sent a letter to former Liberal finance minister Mike de Jong saying the province wants to make public a 2014 Ernst and Young report which studied ICBC financials.

Earlier this week Eby called the ICBC situation a 'dumpster fire'.

The Ernst and Young report was edited to remove recommendations before it was made public.

The file is considered confidential which means the province needs direct permission from the former government to release it.

"I expect nothing less than that they will consent to the release of that report," Eby said.

Talk of the report comes just days after the provincial auto insurer posted net losses of $935 million in the first nine months of the fiscal year. Those losses are expected to reach $1.3 billion by the end of Q4.

ICBC said the cost of injury claims is nearing $3 billion a year.
