The irony of it all.
While politicians have rarely impressed me with anything remotely close to consistency in their message, the recent position of the B.C. NDP to explore ways of protecting us from high gas prices is surely… to quote Mastercard… “priceless”!
The same government tells us carbon taxes on transportation fuels are an important part of the essential plan to help wean us off the 21st century “bad guy” – oil and any other non-renewable resource.
Then along come the oil companies, ever eager I’m sure, to help out the B.C. government in their CO2-reduction plan, with even greater price increases.
And now our premier wants to stop it! It’s enough to have the poor, much maligned (green life-preserving) carbon-dioxide molecules turn in their collective graves.
