e-3233 (Consumer protection)

E-petition
Initiated by Signe Miller from Canyon, British Columbia

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • The cost of fuel in Kootenay—Columbia continues to fluctuate erratically, with prices prone to wide variations between communities, without reasonable explanation;
  • The organizations responsible for the supply of fuel to Kootenay—Columbia remain complacent in the effort to provide competitively priced fuel; and
  • The federal government has taken no action to ensure that fuel prices are fair and competitive, despite numerous complaints from citizens and watchdog groups.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to:
1. Focus on the affordability aspects of fuel, as it has done for telecom services;
2. Investigate, through the Federal Competition Act, for any evidence of anticompetitive conduct in the fuel sector; and
3. Move to protect consumers from price gouging by fuel suppliers.
