Editor: It is Saturday morning, March 1, and the prices of gas and home heating oil have risen yet again. No doubt this will include an increase in taxes in the price and should assist Provincial Tax Increaser Sheridan in balancing the budget.
With any luck P.E.I. may end up in a surplus position and start paying off the $2-billion debt and the interest charges associated with it.
