More Gas Pains for Nanaimo

Canada Day Sees New
'Carbon' Tax on Gasoline

Starting tomorrow BC residents can start repaying their $100 rebate at the rate of 2.4 cents per litre.

The gas pumps have become a convenient method of dipping into our pockets by all levels of government and this new tax is just another example. Will the new tax actually do anything to reduce fuel use and will it actually be used for the intended purpose or just disappear into general revenue?

Well, that's my rant for today but starting tomorrow we will all be contributing just a little more to the provincial government.

Does anyone know where the alka seltzer is these days?
