Gas Prices Fuel Federal Debate

Fort St. John residents got a chance last night to find out where the local candidates stand on the issues in the upcoming federal election.

Monday night’s all-Candidate forum in Fort St. John did indeed see all four candidates running in the Prince George-Peace River riding come out to debate the issues-thanks to a last minute confirmation from Liberal Lindsay Gidney.

One of the issues on the minds of Fort St. John residents was the rising cost of fuel. When asked how their parties would control massive fluctuations in gas prices, Gidney said his party would improve the competition bureau’s ability to monitor gas prices and push for fiscal transparency for oil producers. But, he says, over the long run, Canadians need to look at alternatives. [asset|aid=347|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=d7ad44662c4c156028cc098c409027bf-Gidney_gas_1_Pub.mp3]

Green Party Candidate Hilary Crowley also expressed a need to work towards fuel alternatives, suggesting Canadians should get used to paying what the rest of the world does for gas. [asset|aid=348|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=d7ad44662c4c156028cc098c409027bf-Crowley_Gas_1_Pub.mp3]

However, Crowley also said she believes that mechanisms to prevent price gouging must be enforced.
