It looks Canadian specific. I signed lots of anti-oil petitions already.

Same issue everywhere.. and their "NEWS RELEASE" is not especially new ;) guess the problem is the same in 2013 as it was in 2011 ;-) ("We are days away from the 2011 federal budget and the federal government continues to give billions of dollars in tax breaks to the companies producing oil and gas in Canada..")

Glad Canada is doing something about it! The subsidies are hurting all of us!!
Why do the RICH OIL COMPANIES need this??
Give to the one's that "Gouge" us!
Price at the pumps are up one day and down the next or even 2-3 times in one day!
It needs to be set so it can't be changed but once a week! On a certain day!

If changes are going to come it will be through the people.

The US is willing to give tax breaks, subsidies, and anything they can to corporations while literally stealing from the disabled and seniors with a Chain CPI. America we must wake up by acting against corporations the same way African Americans did in the sixties. The only thing corporations will understand is when we strike against purchasing their products. Start with Walmart. Question is can the most vulnerable among us afford to turn their backs on the Walmarts in this country.
