My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world. Jack Layton
Heard an interesting interview about this on CBC yesterday. We pay more in Canada than elsewhere in the world because there are an extremely limited number of refineries in Canada, they are not bound to report their pricing changes to any kind of oversight body, and they all charge exactly the same to transform crude to product. Collusion by any other name.
This morning while walking my dogs, I was talking to an older fellow who lives on my street. He had a Conservative sign on his lawn during the election; I had a New Democrat lawn sign. He said to me, "the gov't should do something about this gas price gouging that is going on." Wow. Nice guy but a political moron. In what reality does he (or many others who voted Con) think Harper will do anything to protect Canadian from the vultures in the oil industry?
Don't forget how the market went up right after the election, eh.
Hey leftdog,poor older fellow you talked to lives in the same reality that thinks any other political party could legislate a pricing regime on any and all goods we buy every day. Se ya in 4 years - NDP 175 seats! ;-)
