The so-called "natural" gas (aka methane gas) piped into our homes, schools, and workplaces causes severe health complications and is one of B.C.’s biggest sources of climate pollution – but it doesn’t have to be this way. Premier Eby and his new government can dramatically cut carbon emissions through one simple change: requiring developers to power new buildings with clean electricity instead of methane gas.
In B.C., switching our buildings from methane gas to clean electricity should be an obvious step for any government serious about climate action or public health. Already over a dozen municipalities have taken the lead by passing local policies calling for low carbon construction.
So why is the province still allowing FortisBC to hook up tens of thousands of new buildings to polluting methane gas each year? 🤔
