The British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC) is an independent regulatory agency of the Government of British Columbia.

The BCUC's mission is "to ensure that ratepayers receive "SAFE", reliable, and non- discriminatory energy services at fair rates from the utilities we regulate, and that shareholders of those utilities are afforded a reasonable opportunity to earn a fair return on their invested capital." (our quotes)

FTFO believes that by building new fossil fuel infrastructure, our region and province is adding to future climate risks that endanger us all.

 

A February 2022 report by the Intergovernmental  Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) states, "Climate change is a threat to human well-being and planetary health...Any further delay...will miss a brief and rapidly closing window of opportunity to secure a livable and sustainable future for all." and the UN Security General says, “Investing in new fossil fuel infrastructure is moral and economic madness.”
