About Time


The Province has released terms of reference that will guide the British Columbia Utilities Commission’s (BCUC) investigation into what is driving high, volatile gasoline prices in British Columbia.

“The rapid increase in gas prices in B.C. is alarming, increasingly out of line with the rest of Canada, and people in B.C. deserve answers,” said Premier John Horgan. “We asked the BCUC to conduct a fair, transparent and comprehensive independent investigation. These terms provide the broad reach it needs to find answers and give recommendations to inform the path forward.”

The BCUC may exercise any of the powers provided to it under the Utilities Commission Act, including compelling oil companies as witnesses to explain their prices to the commission.

Sorry - British Columbia campfire ban


The BC Wildfire Service says all open fires, including campfires are now banned across the Coastal Fire Centre — including the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast and Sea to Sky regions — starting immediately, although gas, propane or briquette cooking stoves are still permitted.

The ban applies to Crown land and private land not covered by local open burning bylaws put in place by local municipalities and regional districts. This includes municipal and privately owned campgrounds not covered by municipal bylaws, forestry recreation sites and provincial and federal parks.

BC Parks may also designate certain BC Parks campsites as 'no campfire' location.

Members of the public can report wildfires or unattended campfires by calling *5555 on a cellphone or 1 800 663-5555 toll-free.

Chesney's Chestnuts

Little Johnny did not go to school one day. The next day when the teacher asked him why, he said, "Our cow was on heat, so I had to take her to the bull."

"Oh I see," said the teacher, "but I'm sure your father could have done that."

"No ma'am, he couldn't have," said Johnny, "it has to be the bull"
