ONEIA hosts Ontario PC environment critic
ONEIA's Advocacy Committee hosted Toby Barrett, the Ontario PC Environment Critic, at its meeting on October 20, 2010.
As part of the Association's nonpartisan outreach to all parties, the Advocacy Committee will be meeting with representatives of all parties to hear about their platforms and to share the concerns of environmental businesses. Mr. Barrett thanked ONEIA for the invitation, saying that the organization has incredible value for politicians as it "bridges the gap between the environment and business." He went on to give some insight into how his party will be developing its environmental platform in the coming weeks and shared that "jobs will be the central issue in the coming election."
In addition to our ongoing dialogue with the government, the Advocacy Committee will be inviting representatives from the Green Party and the Ontario NDP to future meetings to discuss their concerns as well. If you are an ONEIA member and would like to be included in the invitation list for future meetings, please e-mail Marjan at firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you are not yet a member and would like to join, please call us at 416-531-7884 or join online. <post accompanying photo, caption to read Toby Barrett visits ONEIA's Advocacy Committee: Left to right, Toby Barrett, Harry Dahme (Gowlings) and Alex Gill (ONEIA)
