MASSIVE B.C. increases trigger response. BUT is there also a massive disconnect ? 2020/06/24 16:55  
In the aftermath of a B.C. financial body estimating FORTY PER CENT AVERAGE STRATA PREMIUM INCREASES, B.C has announced a "first stage" sorta response.

But the commission's mere forty per cent industry wide estimate itself came as a shocking disconnect to some strata communities.

Amongt some actual shockers reported by B.C.'s Aldergrove Star :

In December 2019 Yorkson Creek owner's deductible would climb from $ 5,000 to $ 250,000 for water damage and sewer backup losses. The strata’s insurance premium was going to rise from $ 97,000 to $ 371,00

Abbotsford's Mahogany Tower strata saw their premiums rise by 780 per cent from $66,000 to $588,000.
