On a related topic, my latest Fortis gas bill was $72.00. Only $6.00 of that $72.00 was actual gas usage. The rest was fees, surcharges and taxes. 

 

Fortis splits out Delivery and Storage and Transport from the cost of gas, but of course that cannot actually be unbundled.   So yeah, your "Cost of gas" is extremely low, but unless you want to drive to Alberta to pick it up, the actual "Cost of Gas" must include getting it to your house.  

 

My $66.39 bill consists of:

 

$37.64 cost of gas to my house

$13.89 basic charge from Fortis for being hooked up

$14.89 in taxes

The City of Victoria has become the first municipality in B.C. to support filing a class-action lawsuit that seeks to have oil and gas companies help pay a portion of the costs associated with climate change and is hoping other municipalities follow its lead.

 

A Victoria council meeting, held on Jan. 17, found that the impacts of climate change have resulted in substantial costs for local B.C. governments, and asks the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) to examine the possibility of initiating the lawsuit. - https://www.theglobe...st-the-oil-and/

What a bunch of morons. 

 

This has rapidly become a mind-numbingly stupid city hall.

Given the amount of taxation applied to gasoline prices, including local transit taxes, carbon taxes (de-coupled from revenue neutrality) and on top of the whole smorgasbord of taxes, GST, governments are complicit in profiting from the sale of gasoline.

Not only that, but the City of Victoria - admits through its own actions - the criticality of fossil fuels via its use of police vehicles, fire/rescue vehicles, ambulances, transit buses, CoV work trucks, library trucks that shuttle books between branches, school district vehicles, delivery trucks, heavy construction equipment, etc., etc., etc.

 

I would just love to see the CoV pave a roadway without fossil fuels. I would just love to see them maintain BHP without fossil fuels. Bet they could have easily built the new JSB without good old dino oil. *rolls eyes*

 

The City of Victoria profits off of its parking garages that are more or less for the exclusive use of ICE personal vehicles, for heaven sakes.
