    When I bought gas there today, the gas station on Granville Street was an Esso. The MacArthur's on Water Street was a Wilson's.

    If they put MacArthur's Esso on the police report, I'm sure he'll get off scott free. Plus, theft under $5000 for $47 worth of gas? I would have grabbed some smokes. a few car washes and some chips too.

    Please read and understand before commenting . Mac Arthur's Esso is in fact on Granville Street. Wilson's (formerly Mac Arthur's) is on Water Street. Now go apply for jobs as required by your EI requirements .
