Mr. Speaker, I would like to express the anger of the people of Beauce at the latest increase in
the price of gasoline. How can the government allow oil companies to exploit us in this way, especially with the profits they are already making?
I am calling upon the government, and the minister responsible, to take the necessary steps to put an end to this abuse, to condemn this unjust and unacceptable increase. Must we assume that the oil producers are exploiting those with cars by plotting together to fix prices at a high level?
The industry's retail price setting mechanisms must be examined to ensure there has been no collusion. The people feel they are being exploited.
