Enough already, 111 deaths prove the utility is incapable of living up to its promises
By Mercury News & East Bay Times Editorial Boards
CalFire’s confirmation that PG&E caused the Camp Fire — the deadliest and most destructive fire in California history — bolsters the case for Gov. Gavin Newsom and the Legislature to replace or break up the felonious utility.
The Camp Fire killed 85 people and destroyed more than 19,000 structures. In the last decade, PG&E has been directly responsible for disasters that caused 111 deaths. Northern and Central California shouldn’t have to risk another 10 years with PG&E as the provider of gas and electricity.
