I was watching the news and BC Hydro is going to charge everyone another $0.25/month to be put in some type giant pool of money to help those who are behind in their hydro bills. Seems like a good idea in principal but 1/3 of this money is going to be eaten up by their bloated bureaucracy to run this program. Then it goes on to say BC Hydro has increased its rates by 25% over the last 5 years which is far more than inflation and there are literally a huge amount of people making over $100,000 a year there. This is the same place that for years gave essentially every single employee a $1000 bonus for showing up.
I think BC Hydro needs to clean their own house before charging the rest of us in some type of phony altruistic scheme because I can smell the manure a mile away.
