Actually there is a problem and a number of provinces are lobbying the government to amend the import rules due to the higher accident risk.
A 2007 study by the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) found accident risk for right-hand drive cars to be 40-per-cent higher compared to “normal” cars. A province of Quebec study found a 30-per-cent higher risk of collisions.
I was reading an article in the newspaper in Alberta in December where it was suggested that Alberta may make up some of their own rules on the topic as they have grown tired of waiting for Transport Canada to do anything about it.
