Gas Prices Down Today!

And Apparently All Ontarians Have Doug Ford and his “Government for the People” to thank

A News Release from the Office of Ontario Premier Doug Ford

Fill up at the tanks!

Hey Friends! Give the man a thumbs up

Gas prices dropped by 5 cents today due, in large part, to Premier Doug Ford and the Government for the People’s cancellation of the cap-and-trade carbon tax.

Meanwhile, on the opposition benches, the NDP caucus want hard-working Ontario families to pay more every single time they fill up at the pumps.

  • The NDP continue to actively promote and support Kathleen Wynne’s cap-and-trade carbon tax.
  • Joel Harden, the NDP MPP for Ottawa Centre, openly campaigned on a $150/tonne carbon tax – which would be the highest carbon tax in the entire world. If implemented, it would increase gas prices by 35 cents per litre.
  • The NDP’s Finance Critic Sandy Shaw has called the PC plan to lower gas prices “reckless.”

    I understand Ford’s perception. Will he be as quick to claim responsibility when prices go back up as they most surely will? I think not. At best he will have another spin on the tale.
