As report confirms gouging at the pump, Wilkinson continues to defend oil companies

Despite a BCUC report confirming yesterday that big oil companies were unable to defend their high gas prices, BC Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson still refuses to denounce companies for price-gouging.


Wilkinson previously defended oil companies, accusing government of “making up these demons that they like to invent in the NDP.” (CKNW, April 25, 2019)


Now Wilkinson opposes legislating oil companies to be more transparent about why they raise their prices.


The unexplained 13 cents/litre price difference already costs BC drivers $490 million more each year, according to the BCUC.


Why does Andrew Wilkinson continue to defend price-gouging oil companies?
