Dubious price hike

Regarding the article Harvey leaves our region with gas pains (Sept. 2).

Can someone please explain to me why a flood in Texas raises the price of gas in Ontario?

What’s next, Donald Trump has indigestion and our health plan goes south?

Gouged by gas

Why would Ontarians be gas gouged when our own refineries supply us?

The world price of oil is still down. Not one drop of gas comes from the U.S.

All the fuel we receive is processed right here in Canada.

Without dam, forks dead

If the Springbank Dam is decommissioned, the river development at the forks of the Thames River is basically dead. What will be left in the area will be an abundance of stones, large rocks, a trickling stream of water, hence a predominantly naked river bed. This will also make any type of downtown water recreation impossible, thus making the river both visually and physically a dysfunctional creek. Any chance of recreational vibrancy that a high-water level would allow will be squandered and non-existent.

If one wants to view varying sizes of aggregate accompanied by a bleak landscape, simply visit a spent gravel pit.

Racers put us at risk

Since more and more Ontario residents consider the roads their personal racetrack, the Canadian government should consider that any infrastructure spending should come from these racers.

Deterrence should be more than one week’s loss of a licence. Driving is a privilege, not a right. The rest of us, who understand the responsibilities of driving, continually pay in higher insurance rates and with our lives for these egotistical, unsocial Formula One wannabes.
