Fuel prices: Talking, writing and urging is not working

On the front page of Peninsula News (May 4) was an article citing Allan Nash's monitoring of the fuel rip off here on the Peninsula.

In his Letter to the Editor in the same paper, Brian Lewis raised the need to end this obvious and ongoing fuel rip-off.

However, all we got from our Local Member was a puff piece on the front page about talking, writing and urging us to fill up somewhere else.

Enough is enough.

Talking, writing and urging is not working.

It's time, people, for us to exercise our power.

Let's get together and do things like, all of us, including fleet card and business account holders, stop buying their fuel and using their services.

Name the owners, lessees or operators of the service stations.

Find out whether any of them own or operate other businesses locally and have local businesses charge them inflated prices for all goods and services provided to them.

Start placard waving picket lines in protest.

Flood our Local Member with demands that public service "watchdog" agencies be required to resolve the problem.

Find more ingenious and legal ways to solve the problem.

If our politician and our public servants can do nothing to reduce the cost of fuel, perhaps it's time to reduce the cost of the public service that is not providing service - and change our local representative.
