Back when Trudeau was Canada's Prime Minister he had the balls to take on the big oil companies. He created Petro Canada as a crown corporation with the belief that one honest company in fair competition would force the others to follow.
Unfortunately there was such hell raised by Alberta that he had to back off and Petro Canada was eventually dumped back into the private sector.
If his plan had been allowed to stand I believe that our prices would have been much fairer today. Canadian prices should be determined and set here. We should not be slaves to the so called global economy because we produce and export far more than what we import. OPEC be damned!
