Why do they need a gas station?

 

Any neighbourhood that doesn't have its own gas station is surely a fraud and a joke. Just ask Oak Bay about it.

James Bay deserves to be energy independent.

They should probably have their own nuclear reactor.

Listen, nobody should be questioning James Bay's commitment to climate action. But until the day comes when political hot air can power our Cadillacs, we're going to need those gas stations, am I right?

Weren't they scheduled to get a windmill once?

I'm pretty sure the windmill-powered Cadillacs were abandoned because they presented all kinds of issues re: overhead lines.

First Oak Bay, then James Bay... if present trends continue I predict Ross Bay will be the next neighbourhood to lose its gas station.

Didn't Cordova Bay lose theirs?

 

Cadboro Bay still has one.

There's definitely a correlation if not a causation.

Doesn't the Thrify Foods, just a moment away from the old gas station, sell motor oil? I thought I saw some there.
 
Maybe she required specific oil?


Even we sell motor oil. When you need it, you need it. In the last 12 years I have not ever needed to buy oil, even once.
