ON: CPA Continues to Push for Inclusion of Propane in Ontario GCVP
The CPA continues to meet with senior officials to ensure that propane is included in the Green Commercial Vehicle Program (GCVP). Propane is a low-emission, affordable, and safe alternative fuel that is available now and has the necessary refuelling infrastructure already in place. Propane was included in the 2008-2010 version of the program and should continue to be included in the current GCVP. The government has also based its decisions off misleading and inaccurate data, and has yet to provide a compelling case for why propane has been excluded. CPA staff have met with the Ontario Ministry of Transport and the Ontario Premier’s Office and are in the process of scheduling follow-up meetings.
