Is Insulbrick a good vapor barrier?

I am trying to cover the exterior of my home with vinyl siding. The issue is the insulbrick siding I have on the walls now?Do I remove this siding before I install vinyl or can I cover it? What I want to do is cover the insulbrick with a 3/8 or 1/2 inch insulating board and then attach the vinyl siding.Some builders here in Winnipeg Manitoba say it is okay and others are saying I haveto remove the insulbrick because it does not breathe and will rot the walls.Some history on the house; it is around 100 years old and we replaced all the windows above ground, re insulated the walls from the interior and applied a vapor barrier in the walls and ceiling. I am hoping you can supply me with the correct (proper) way to install the vinyl siding.
