Letter: Fortis electric heat comes at appalling expense

Hopefully enough of us complain that they will finally get rid of this two tier system.

To the editor:

My husband and I rented a house with electric heat on Oct.25/12 till Feb.12/13

We have no choice but because the house has only electric heat it has cost us $1308 for that specific period.

I feel that as seniors it is apalling that Fortis is getting away with this two tier system. It is hurting the very people that can least afford it.

I have emailed B.C. utilities and phoned Fortis and emailed the premier hoping to get some relief not just for myself but also other seniors and probably young families who must use the electricity more often. Hopefully enough of us complain that they will finally get rid of this two tier system.

Ann Percival,
