Hi to all...
Been busy this last week on the hustings, and so, I'll keep it short!

Here's what I have for this weeks price change to happen Thursday morning.
  • Heating and stove oils show down by 1.05 cents per litre.
  • Diesel shows down by 8/10ths of a cent, and...
  • Gasoline shows up by 6/10ths of a cent.
That's it for me for this week!

I will finish off with one last word...

If you deem it too political, then please tune out.

For the past fourteen years, I have worked closely on behalf of the consumer in pursuit of the complete removal of the HST from all forms of heat.

On Monday coming, you will be given the chance to vote for a political party here in Canada that will act to remove this evil and unnecessary tax from an important commodity that we use everyday, and that also is deemed as a necessity of life and a growing health concern for some. While we have met with success provincially in removing the tax, the federal wing of the New Democratic Party under Jack Layton has as part of it's platform, the removal of the remaining five per cent HST on heat.

We are THIS CLOSE to having the tax removed once and for all.

I am asking my readers nationally and here in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador to keep the NDP in mind when they consider where to park their vote come election day. The removal of the remaining HST on all heat will come as soon as 100 days after the election of a strong Layton mandate.

It's been so long, and we are so close...
