Fraser Valley – You will start to pay a little more for a few services as of April 1st. It’s not a bad April Fool’s Joke. These hikes were already announced, it’s just that they are now a reality.
In Metro Vancouver, expect the cost per litre for a tank of gas could hit $1.60 with the Valley being 10 to 12 cents behind that (the Valley does not pay the same transit tax as Metro Vancouver).
The provincial carbon tax rises $5/tonne or in short, a rise of 1.2 cents a litre a year for the next few years.
Your BC Hydro bill is not frozen so expect a 3% hike on the power bill.
The bright side is that you don’t pay PST on your hydro bill.
