Pricey Gas in Rigolet, July 14, 2005
"It costs $1.31 a litre, but at least people in Rigolet have gasoline. Some 80,000 litres were delivered to the town this week to help it get through to the fall. A private company pulled out a couple of years ago, leaving the town to continue the service. On VOCM Niteline with Linda Swain, Mayor Richard Riche said the town will run the system until it can make other arrangements. Riche says he hopes the Metis Nation and LIA will get involved to help take the pressure off the town."
