Canada's British Columbia trims 2015-16 budget surplus projection

VANCOUVER, Sept 15 (Reuters) - British Columbia projected a revised budget surplus of C$277 million ($208.82 million) in fiscal 2015-16, down C$7 million on its budget forecast, as the government expects the cost of fighting forest fires in the Western Canadian province to be higher than expected.

The surplus is projected at C$336 million in 2016-17 and C$388 million in 2017-18, both modestly down on its February budget forecast.
