Limit spending, get borrowing under control

Re: Get ready for Hydro rate hikes (B.C. Views, July 10).

Yes, the BC Hydro rate increase tsunami is coming after the earthquake of BC government debt.

This will hit lower income people – hard. All levels of government are increasing fees and service rates rather than raise income taxes on those who can contribute more and pay more property tax.

I don’t want to see any drastic action to increase job loss, but governments at all levels need to limit their spending growth to the level of inflation and get borrowing under control.
