! That is exactly what I had intended to post the instant I read your thread title. I have noticed also that many places have even raised the price
of some things even more.
One example is cigarettes. At a nearby Esso gas station, the price of smokes is now exactly $10.00, whereas anywhere else still ranges from
$8.80-$9.90 with the exception of downtown. (I know I know it isn't much, but it does add up)
And- before the thought even begins to form- I know I should quit and I know I wouldn't have this issue if I did
I think the conservatives have, and still make Canadians feel somewhat uneasy, because afterall, the liberals duped us bigtime, and most of us wanted
any party other than liberal.
The GST cut was just one more "perk" the Conservatives promised to win us over- and being a minority government, we held them to it.
Bagles at Timmie's also went up 4 cents.
