It’s Not Too Late to Lobby Against Unfair Natural Gas Expansion!

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The Ontario government has recently announced a new Natural Gas Grant Program that subsidizes the building of natural gas infrastructure in rural Ontario. Instead of supporting local propane companies, this program will create an unfair advantage for natural gas expansion using $100 million of Ontario tax payer dollars, jeopardizing the businesses of hard-working propane companies, and leaving many rural and remote taxpayers underserved. It does little to ease the pain of high hydro costs in the short and long term.

The Canadian Propane Association issued a news release, Subsidized Natural Gas Expansion Hurts Small Businesses and Employees, on Monday, January 30 and is lobbying the government to communicate the wide-spread, negative effects of this new grant program. The CPA is calling on Members to get involved and write to their MPPs who represent the areas in which they operate as well as to federal MPs. A Form Letter is available to Members to personalize and use in lobbying efforts and is available on The Grid. The news release can also be included with the letters and distributed to local media.

Make your voice heard - every letter counts!
