“Canada’s Back,” PM Tells Insurance Brokers

19 October 2006

Niagara Falls, ON

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen.

Thank you Beth for your kind introduction.

Thanks to the 10,000 independent businesspeople who belong to the Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario, consumers in this province have access to a wide array of insurance products at competitive prices.

In communities large and small, insurance brokers help individuals and businesses get the coverage they need and the support they need when they make a claim.

I also know that as respected professionals within your communities many of you are involved in local business, sports and charitable organizations (and maybe even in political parties).

And that’s why I’m especially pleased to be with you today.
