Mr. Speaker, day after day, ordinary Canadians are waking up to find that their lives are getting more expensive all the time.
Most recently, across the country gas prices have skyrocketed. In British Columbia, prices are reaching the absurd level of $1.25 per litre. This is the result of gouging by American refineries.
It is important to note that the minister is supporting big oil and speculators in New York and Chicago at the expense of ordinary Canadians.
When will the minister actually regulate energy prices and stand up for fairness so that ordinary Canadians have regulations that protect them, as opposed to the big oil industry?
