Mr. Speaker, I think he has misunderstood my question. I will put it a different way so that he understands.
Citizens are right to ask questions. A refining margin between 5¢ and 7¢ is normal, whereas a margin of 27¢ is excessive. I will tell the minister again that in Halifax, Esso refines for everyone; in New Brunswick, it is Irving; in Quebec, it is Ultramar; and in Montreal, it is Petro-Canada and Shell.
Does the minister not find it normal for people to wonder? Is it not time to give the Competition Bureau the power to investigate?
