As of April 1, Horgan is imposing a 1.5 cent gas tax on top of all the others. More to come as he brings in even higher Horgan Carbon Taxes which he easily admits have nothing to do with carbon. BC will have the highest gas prices in N America this Summer. Stay away and support the environmental jihadists.

For those out of Province, stay away, DO NOT holiday in BC. as you WILL be ripped off. Everything you buy will be more expensive. Support NDP Horgan and the Weaver Greens by spending your money somewhere it is appreciated. If you have a holiday property, sell it, fast. Trudeau's Communist Chinese have lots of money to launder.

If you do need to travel from out of Province, fill the tank as full as you can. Carry extra if possible. Buy only enough to get you out of the Province and bring your own food. Common sense economy.

Tell us what you are really thinking, don't be shy, 99%

With rising gas prices we are going to pay a lot more for groceries, everything. B.C. and Canada are governed by fools and we all get to pay for the idiocy. Politicians on the other hand do quite nicely after the sheeple have been shorn. Nice fat pensions. Not a care.

Glad most of the locals like the “speculation tax”.....and now this. It’s just the start. NDP will tax any province they are in to death.

While I don't think higher prices and taxes will detour people from bringing tourism to our Province, and I would for sure not detour people from visiting our province because of a Government tax increase. The 1000's of people and communities that live on tourism are really the only people your logic will punish.

Funny, the gas tax went UP, but the price at the pump DROPPED! Down to 118.9/litre today!

The price drop is also engineered by the evil Horgan-Trudeau axis. It makes us accepting of the tax. Price hikes in a week or so will be gradual and rise higher than before the price drop. It's the way leftist enviro-freaks work to deceive us.

Theres an awful lot of conspiracy theory in that small post. I find it really hard to believe that the gas and oil companies agreed to collude with the government to temporarily lower gas prices. Especially not as part of a left wing conspiracy, I mean the oil / gas companies are historically proponents of right wing conspiracies.

The carbon tax has bumped up gas prices by 1.2 cents a litre, which stations have rounded up to two cents.


Gotta love how despite gas prices being given to the tenth of the cent at the pump, gas companies used this as an excuse to “round” the prices up by another .8c/litre. At least the carbon taxes go back into our country to be used for Canadians. This extra “rounding” just rounds the gas companies profits higher at our expense.

That just means the gas station owner is making less money...
