I would like to express my outrage because of the gas prices in Prince George.
Last Saturday the price of gas in Abbotsford was 120.9 c/litre. In Vancouver where they pay a 15 c/litre levy for transit, the price fluctuated between 130.9 and 135.9 c/litre.
How can the oil industry justify 138.9 c/litre here in Prince George where we have a refinery? This is nothing else than blatant robbery. The worst part is that this robbery is happening with the consent of our three levels of government.
My question for the governing people is when are they going to represent their constituents and shield them from being mugged by the oil companies?
This is economic terrorism, and under the terrorism act the oil companies should be expropriated. This would have the added benefit that the governments could eliminate their deficits while giving the motorists a break.
