CPA’s first Ontario Propane Advocacy Day, held on September 28, was highly successful.  Numerous association members from across Ontario, as well as CPA staff, joined CPA Chair Guy Marchand, Vice Chair Dan Kelly, and representatives from Parkland Fuel Corporation and Superior Propane at Queen’s Park, Toronto to participate in dozens of meetings with Ministers, their staff, and MPPs from all political parties.

At an evening reception, MPPs representing the Liberal government, as well as opposition members from the Progressive Conservatives and NDP, all agreed they were impressed with the message our members delivered throughout the day: Propane is vital to Ontario’s economy and for environmental initiatives. The day’s effort has prompted follow-up discussions with Ontario MPPs to further consider the role of propane in the province’s work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Building on the success of the Lobby Day in Ontario, the CPA will be conducting similar outreach efforts in other provincial capitals in the coming months.
