Email to the Editor: Ontario government can help with sting of gas prices

Gas at the pump is at an all time high; inflation is hurting everyone. Yet, the Ontario government seems to have missed an opportunity to help the consumer. As this is the case I offer this suggestion to our local Progressive Conservative MPP, Jim McDonell and Premier Doug Ford. If you want to help ease inflation and pain at the pump, why not reduce the amount of provincial taxes from approximately 17% for the duration of the gas hike? Stable gas prices will help everyone and show that the government cares about the people of Ontario.
