Be Careful At The Gas Pump

An online video showing a Petro-Canada pumping station in Laval charging clients even when they weren't fuelling their car has gone viral, with more than one million views since it was posted Oct. 6.

Saint-Eustache resident Dylan Fisher took two videos of the same pump driving up his tab when he wasn't getting gas from it one on Oct. 5 and another on Oct. 6.

The Petro-Canada station where the video was taken is on the service road of Highway 440 and 100th Avenue in Laval.
Fisher said that only Monday, Oct. 17 did he see that the pump had been fixed.

He said after filming the second video an employee came out to confront him, thinking he was doing something to the pump.

When he told her what was happening, he says, "She basically flipped out at us."

"I was trying to explain to her that we told her manager the day before [about the malfunction] and I didn't understand how the pump was still in function for customers to use," Fisher told CBC News.

"If it was the other way around, if it was giving gas without charging the customer, they would shut the pump down immediately for repairs. But since it was contrary, they didn't care."

Fisher said he spends 60 to 75 hours per week on the road for his job installing orange cones, marking detours and shutting down lanes for road work all over Quebec.

His company has a fuel contract with Petro-Canada, spending what he estimates is thousands of dollars per week at the petroleum company's stations.

Fisher said he's seen this kind of skimming at the pump happen before, from a video someone took at an Esso station.

"At least now, more people will be aware of it. So now when people go to get gas, they know that when they let off the lever, if they wait five to 10 seconds, they'll see if it keeps charging," Fisher said.

The manager of the Laval Petro-Canada station refused CBC's request for comment.

Petro-Canada's parent company, Suncor, has not yet replied to CBC's inquiries.

Sounds like voter fraud to me. You have one verified incident, and then a whole bunch of fantasist who hear about this time, from this guy, who was a friend of their mom's cousin's brother-in-law. Next thing you know it's a CON-SPIR-A-CEEEEEEEE!

Pay attention when you spend money, folks. Whether you're handing over a note, or swiping your card. The ability to do basic arithmetic in your head helps.

when all the gas repair garages were tested
all the biggs were found to be crooked as hell
only the small non chain shops had any semblance of integrity

example
"But these were only six garages out of 19 that properly diagnosed and fixed the loose cable.
The other 13 either couldn't figure it out, or worse, performed and charged for unnecessary repairs.

like vote fraud its serious for the peeps
just to illustrate how some take the same same approach to posting:

"Far left groups continually sue to keep the voter rolls the way they are. The Obama administration has no desire to clean up these voter rolls.

J. Christian Adams: Dead people are voting and it’s something this administration does not want to do anything about. They must like it. They must like who they are voting for… Now we have four million, four million Steve, ineligible and dead voters on American voter rolls according to the Pew Charitable Trust."

As long as the government gets their share of that stolen money they don't care. Now if Petrocan did not remit the requires amount those pumps would be shut down retroactively.
