  1. In 6 or 6 weeks everyone will be just paying the price and life goes on.. We were paying more than this a few years back and we all survived.. You could live in Vancouver,, and I doubt McDougal sells the gas out there.. It’s just the price we pay to live in a country as great as this one is. Wouldn’t want to live anywhere else, all things considered, with all the crap that’s happening in other countries…

  2. Anyone that buys their gasoline in Sault Ontario needs their head read as long as the McGouger energy monopoly continues to screw us royally at the pumps. On top of this travesty they also overcharge ridiculously on fuel oil and propane to heat our homes. It’s a shame that it’s not possible to deal with US suppliers for heating fuel as well as gasoline.
    There is no excuse besides full blown greed.

  3. It’s insane! Let the pipeline go through….All your environmentalists should be way more worried about the huge Tankers carrying millions of litres of gas through our oceans than oil running through pipelines….A pipeline can be shut off just like your kitchen taps….but if oil spills in the ocean…huge damage…and besides…this is just a cash grab courteousy of Mr. Justin Trudeau.
