B.C. Liberal Leader Wilkinson slams Premier Horgan on gas tax raise

Andrew Wilkinson

B.C. Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson on Thursday called on Premier John Horgan to lower the gas tax now.

Wilkinson said in a statement: “John Horgan should be reducing costs for drivers. Instead, John Horgan is making British Columbians pay more.

“This tax grab is a slap in the face from John Horgan. While British Columbians are struggling to get ahead, John Horgan hiked another tax without even having the courtesy to tell British Columbians about it.

“People deserve some help to make life a little more affordable and government should lower the gas tax and give folks a break from the pain at the pump.

“Today, I am calling on John Horgan to do what we asked him to do in May and lower the gas tax now.”
