While serving as Canada’s Prime Minister, Stephen Harper has stood with the oil companies. He failed to do anything to protect consumers from unfair gas price gouging. Now in the midst of an election he has decided something should be done to protect consumers, but he has yet to say what that may be. At least he has acknowledged that the oil companies have been taking advantage of consumers. It is too bad that it has taken an election for Harper to finally realize that the government must do something to protect consumers.
