The MPP for Timmins-James Bay is weighing in on the Energy Ministers decision to look into gas prices. Gilles Bisson says instead of making the Ontario Energy Board conduct another study, the government should just regulate the price of gas like they do with many other things.
Bisson says gas companies control the price of fuel and are able to take advantage of consumers and the market. He says in Timmins on Monday, gas was about $1.10 a liter and that same day in Ottawa it was 20-cents cheaper.
Bisson says the solution is simple, the government needs to step up and regulate the cost of fuel across the province. He says if alcohol is regulated and has similar prices all across Ontario, why shouldn’t something as important as gas be too.
