David Morton is the Chair of the British Columbia Utilities Commission.
Anna Fung is a Commissioner of the British Columbia Utilities Commission.
In chilly Calgary, in May, CAMPUT had its annual conference. CAMPUT was the acronym for the Canadian Association of Members of Public Utility Tribunals. But nobody wanted to say that long name anymore. And the word Tribunals is kinda old-fashioned. So they changed the name of Canada's NARUC to Canada's Energy and Utility Regulators but loyally stuck with the original acronym.
Two of us from the PUF team were there for the regulatory rodeo. Check out interviews with western and northern Canadian regulators.
PUF: You're the Chair of the BC Utilities Commission. Tell us about what you regulate in British Columbia, and what your job is like?
Chair Morton: We have two areas of regulation, and one of those areas is public auto insurance.
There's a provincial government owned auto insurance company, which has a monopoly on compulsory insurance, not on liability insurance. We regulate those rates and some aspects around the delivery of the operation of the insurance rate.
