Letter: Gas gouging gross

It is high time to lobby our candidates to do something about this larceny of our wallets

To the editor:

Having moved to Kelowna recently for the great climate (not so much recently), I knew that B.C. stood for ‘Bring Cash’ in slang terms. I really must admit that one of my biggest pet peeves is that of being at the mercy of the big oil companies gouging us all when it comes to the unusually high gas prices. With a provincial election just around the corner, maybe it is high time to lobby our candidates to do something about this larceny of our wallets so that we can really enjoy the beauty this area has to offer us and encourage tourists wanting to come visit. Some from other provinces may choose to go elsewhere because of these high gas prices.
