Chamber Supports FortisBC’s Request for Reconsideration

April 30, 2013 – Victoria, BC – The Chamber is supporting FortisBC’s application currently with the British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC) to reconsider their decision denying FortisBC’s common rate proposal. In February 2013, the BCUC rejected the common rate proposal, which would have created postage stamp rates for natural gas throughout the province. Whistler and Vancouver Island currently have the highest natural gas rates in British Columbia.

“Victoria and the Island deserve equitable treatment in natural gas rates," says Chamber CEO Bruce Carter who is attending FortisBC’s community consultation today.

A backgrounder follows.

The Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce, with approximately 1,500 members, is the voice of business for Greater Victoria and has received Accreditation with Distinction from the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.
