Sorry, but that's simply not correct. You are making reference to a case where the passenger voluntarily cancelled the flight. The OP is referring to a situation where BA have cancelled the flight. BA explicitly list this as a reason for a refund:

ddschur have a look at the above link, there's a button at the end of the page that will take you to a form where you can request a refund. Seating fees are generally treated separately, so I expect you'll need to apply for that refund separately, it won't come back to you automatically as part of any fare/avios/taxes refund.
