(Toronto, September 19, 2018) – Today, Rocco Rossi, President and CEO of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce released the following statement in response to Premier Doug Ford’s new proposed natural gas program.
“We are pleased to hear about Premier’s Ford plan to develop a new natural gas program. The proposed natural gas expansion will not only help to make life more affordable for Ontarians but boost job creation and economic growth in rural and northern Ontario communities.
“We have been consistently urging the Ontario government to expand natural gas access as it is a clean and affordable option for powering homes and businesses across the province. At a time when businesses are struggling to invest in and grow their operations, we will continue to advocate on behalf of our diverse network of 60,000 members to make energy more affordable. The OCC is committed to working with the Government of Ontario to create a prosperous province.”
