If a recent commercial is to be believed, then FortisBC is in the business of selling outdoor gear. Nothing in the 30-second ad of a parent and child walking through a forest suggests that connecting your home to gas could lead to catastrophic global warming.  Two concerned B.C. residents and the organization Stand.Earth are taking FortisBC to court for using ads like this to greenwash its products.
