BC: CPA engages early with new provincial government
In December, Premier David Eby announced his new cabinet, including veterans and newcomers to the B.C. political scene. The cabinet is diverse, regionally representative, majority female, and strategically aligned with Premier Eby’s focus areas of housing, public safety, healthcare and the environment.
The CPA reached out to the ministers and key staffers of energy, mines and low-carbon innovation, environment and climate change strategy, Indigenous relations and reconciliation, and municipal affairs. CPA messaging included areas of potential collaboration to ensure propane continues to play a role and is a part of the CleanBC roadmap as well policy suggestions for the government’s ‘B.C. Priorities’, which was also distributed to the B.C. United Party.
The CPA will engage with the new government in areas of challenges and opportunities and will be more consistently engaged with Victoria, including but not limited to, organizing a lobby day in Q2 2023.
