Long Title: Add Your Name Today
In 2014 the BC Liberals implemented a reckless 28% hike to BC Hydro rates. And they did it right after an election where they promised to keep rates low.
After 9% and 6% increases the last two years, your rates go up by another 4% on April 1, 2016.
Sub Title: A reckless rate hike
Under the BC Liberal plan, British Columbians will pay an average of $300 more per year on their BC Hydro bills.
Hospitals, childcare centres, schools, and businesses large and small will face massive increases on their Hydro bills thanks to the BC Liberals reckless mismanagement of BC Hydro, potentially putting people out of work.
This devastating rate hike is squeezing hard working people while the economy is still in a fragile recovery. For people in cold climates, it can mean choosing between heating and groceries.
What's more, BC Hydro is hiding billions in deferral accounts to show a false profit so the BC Liberals can scoop $500 million to pad the province's budget. These accounting tricks mean more pressure on rates for everyone.
