Toronto Sun: Lilley: 'Inflation, an increased carbon tax and extra GST revenue may be taking their toll on your bank account, but they’re ensuring Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government can keep up their high spending ways.
'The price of gas hit record highs across Canada over the weekend and might go higher still later in the week.
'The Trudeau government has been dismissive of the idea that the spike in the price of gas is anything but the result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. While the impact of a war and the ensuing sanctions on a major player in the oil market is helping drive up the cost of gas, we’re also doing it to ourselves.
'Proof of this can be seen in comparing gas prices on both sides of the border.'
