Exceptional CPA Member Response

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Industry participation in the CPA's call to action on the Ontario Government Natural Gas Grant Program has been exceptional. Dozens of propane companies sent letters to the Premier, Ministers, and their local MPPs and MPs, outlining their concern about the $100 million grant program.

In a letter of response sent to the CPA and those members who participated, the Minister of Infrastructure has signalled the government’s ongoing, somewhat illogical support of the natural gas grant program. However, our efforts have caught the attention of the government and MPPs; they understand that we are concerned and that our industry plays an essential economic role in this province.

The CPA encourages members to keep up the conversation. There has never been a more important time for the propane industry to be heard and input from local businesses, who create many jobs, carries a lot of weight with elected officials. Please continue to promote the propane message to politicians and other key community stakeholders via personal phone calls, meetings and letters. Resources to help CPA member advocacy efforts are available on The Grid.
