ANGUS SUPPORTS NDP MOTIONS FOR ACTION ON GAS GOUGING

Updated: May 12, 2018

Charlie Angus says ongoing price gouging at the pumps requires action. Angus is supporting two motions from Windsor-West MP Brian Masse to protect consumers at the pumps.

Masse currently has two motions before Parliament that would provide accountability at the pumps for consumers. First, the creation of a Petroleum Monitoring Agency would oversee gas prices across Canada and report directly to Parliament to address questions of potential gouging. Masse is also proposing the creation of an Oil and Gas Ombudsman to investigate complaints from Canadian consumers regarding gouging, follow through with independent investigations and report back to Parliament with their findings and compliance.

Angus says northerners are particularly vulnerable to high gas prices.

"People in the north generally have to travel longer distances. There is little competition for gas outlets and people know that they are getting hosed at the pumps. They are fed up, and they expect their government to do something about the price gouging going on at the gas pumps. The NDP has spoken on this issue for years. It's now time for the Liberal government to support accountable energy pricing."

This past December, MPP Gilles Bisson (Timmons-James Bay) also introduced a bill in the Ontario Legislature bill that would have saved Ontario families from gasoline price gouging. Bill 183, Fairness in Petroleum Pricing Act, 2017, was read for a second time in the legislature and was defeated by Kathleen Wynne's Liberals before reaching a third reading.
