You can sue ICBC or the vandals for diminished value, however its not an easy or quick process and the legal costs for the competent attorney usually makes it not really worth it.

This week, Marketplace investigates what some call the best kept secret in the car insurance industry: why insurance companies prevent people from claiming diminished value insurance on vehicles that have been in a significant collision. So if you've been in a car accident, here's what you can do:

1. Ask your body shop to appraise the amount of re-sale value your vehicle has lost

2. Ask your insurance company to compensate you for the diminished value your vehicle has incurred.

3. File a claim in small claims court if your insurance company refuses to compensate you for diminished value.

4. Press your insurance company to write off the damage rather than repair it if the diminished value is high or you were planning to trade your car in soon.

5. Call or write to the Insurance Bureau of Canada and the insurance regulator in your province if you think that diminished value should be covered.

Maybe the other prisoners are giving him a "protein shake".

saw him working @ fitness world a few days ago....they're obviously not going to give him hard jail time (or any) because there's a pic of him running out of the bay, probs just some community service.

Thanked; and it's true; and this coming from someone who actually works/worked in the industry.

You know all that complex lingo that goes into your policy wordings... we're supposed to say that it's legal language to properly protect you but in reality, they're worded by lawyers and industry experts to shift bias towards the company and explicitly limit your coverage.

But hey, we made industry buzz words like "all-risk" or "comprehensive coverage" so the average joe wouldn't notice. They're purposely complex so that the average joe would not understand and will not catch on, or will require an insurance broker's assistance.

hahaha, damn.
I'm not sure what else he actually did besides whack the windows a few times though. He's still an idiot for being involved,
but the picture made it look a lot worse. When I first saw the picture, I thought he "single-handely" destroyed B.MO.
But there was a youtube video of this incident that showed the stick didn't even belong to him.
It was a stick that was being passed around and everyone was taking shots at the windows like a pinata.

lol, nah. but my point is the photo kinda implied he took a stick to downtown raging and started destroying everything in sight.
When in reality, he was just one of the many that took turns passing the stick around and giving 2 whacks at the frame/window.

Don't get me wrong, he definitely should be responsible for his actions, but just trying to see things in perspective,
compared to the others that were lighting stuff up on fire or looting.

well, that was the whole point really. the people who were prepared for a riot drew all the idiots in with their actions which snowballed into what we saw. kind of messed up that the people who were fully masked won't be caught but all the idiots with poor judgement (and didn't bother to cover their faces) will be punished. but hey, that's what you get for being so easily swayed by mob mentality and getting caught up in the moment.

you know i've been thinking.. The people with the black masks and shirts saying "i am only here for the riot" have a possibility of being thugs appointed by the government, i don't really think that way but it's a possibility..

at the beggining of this documentary it shows 3 cops dressed up as thugs, and then the toronto police department didn't deny that, and just had no explanation for the public..

Here's vid, if you have time you should watch it it's an interesting documentary on the g20 too

oh and to the jason li youtube video.. his name is CookieMMMonster

i'm pretty sure plain clothed policeman are there to blend in with the crowd and help deter riot-like behaviour. when you see "civilians" immediately step in to stop something, chances are the rest of the crowd won't jump in and fall for mob mentality.

note: i didn't watch that video, this is just my opinion.
