I live on the border between Sooke and Metchosin now, previously in Sooke proper. My wife of 12yrs works as a TCP for a company that maintains the highways of the South Island.
The “gas shortage” is an illusion.
Tues Nov 16 at 7pm the Malahat was closed TEMPORARILY so it could be worked on safely. Fuel tankers have been able to reach Victoria from Nanaimo virtually all day.
There may have been a few deliveries canceled overnight or early today but we aren’t running out of gas.
This is toilet paper panic all over again.
No need to line up and block the streets. Calm down and go home.
