NDP ALR The Rusty Rake Closure


email subscribers will need to visit website to view video

The recent forced closure of a small business in Nanoose points to the lunacy that permeates our bureaucracy these days. Overpaid folk with a degree that have no idea about the benefits of small business making lofty decisions that are killing this country.

The fact the ALR has dealt so harshly with this small family business is enough to turn your stomach. You will notice it is the 'ALR' that makes the decision, instead of the actual faceless, nameless bureaucrats that have an exaggerated sense of their own importance.

Make no mistake, this decision did not have to go the way it did and as the above video clearly demonstrates it shows the hypocrisy of our government. If you are upset let your local MLA know about it.

Wouldn't it be lovely if enough people cared about this issue to demonstrate on the lawn of the legislature and call out the nameless, faceless ones who can change this decision.

British Columbia Gas Prices Highest In Canada

Recent Gas Price Study Proved Nothing
Hamstrung by GreeNDP's Horgan & Weaver

Prices from Gas Buddy Sept. 2/19

It is hard to imagine that the average price for gasoline is cheaper in the Northwest Territories than in the province of British Columbia.

The recent study of gas prices in BC was just another GreeNDP bit of flim flamery as they try to explain why BC enjoys the highest gas prices in all of North America. 

The investigators were not allowed to consider what impact government taxes and government policy has on the cost of fuel at the pumps in BC.

Gas Prices in the USA
Average $.90 CAD per litre
 (adjusted for US gal. & currency exchange)

On Sept. 2 2019 according the AAA the average price in the USA was $2.57 per US gallon.

To compare with Canadian prices takes a bit of head scratching. At $2.57 US per US gallon (3.785 litres) and an exchange rate of $0.752 it would cost $3.42 CAD to purchase one US gallon at today's rate. In other words in the US $3.42 CAD would purchase 3.785 litres of gasoline for a per litre cost of $.90.
