ON: Make your voice heard!
The first budget of the new Ontario government is expected in March or April, and Ontarians are being invited to present and/or file a written submission about what they believe are the priorities for Ontario to the finance committee or with individual MPPs.
Make your voice count! The CPA has put together a Budget 2019 Toolkit and we encourage you to take this opportunity to promote the propane industry. Included in the toolkit are an outline of the issues, templates for a press release to local media and a letter to the editor for your local newspaper. Members are encouraged to customize these to reflect their own business and priorities.
For the press release, there are three models to choose from: one prioritizing action for rural Ontarians in home heating fuel, a second prioritizing action to reduce red tape and ensure a level playing field for Ontario’s propane industry, and the third calling for a tax credit for conversion to auto propane.
The issues outlined in the tool kit will also be included in the Lobby Day efforts at Queen’s Park on February 20. Mark your calendar!
