Competition Bureau in Canada agrees to examine gasoline prices in northwestern Ontario
On November 30, Minister Rickford drew the Bureau's attention to evidence that gasoline prices in northwestern Ontario did not decrease as they did in the rest of Ontario when the cap-and-trade carbon tax was cancelled.
The Bureau has indicated it will consider the data around wholesale and retail gasoline prices and margins included with the Minister's letter. In addition, the Bureau intends to gather further data and contact industry participants for more information, as required. ■
