ACTION REQUIRED | PPO – Oct 24 Lobby Day
The PPO is starting to plan for the fall strategy to support Bill 142. Bruce Reynolds and Sharon Vogel have convened the Advisory Group (the same group used in finalizing the report “Striking the Balance”) to review and consolidate comments/feedback received on Bill 142 after first reading. The group met on August 9th and is slated to meet again in the coming days.On Tuesday, October 24th, 2017 IMPACT, the PPO will be hosting the third annual Queen’s Park Advocacy Day and want you to be the voice of your industry! Participating in face-to-face meetings with MPPs is a valuable way to make your concerns heard and help to make prompt payment legislation a reality in Ontario! Plan A is to use that date as a celebration of the passing of Bill 142, Plan B is to use that day to continue urging the government to do the right thing…. promptly. Either way it is crucial for PPO to continue to engage with MPPs in order to get this legislation over the finish line this Fall. As the next provincial election is quickly approaching in June, we have to hold the government to its promise of passing prompt payment legislation prior to the election.Be sure to participate at Queen’s Park on October 24, 2017!It will be a full day event beginning with breakfast at 8:00am and meetings running from 9:00am-5:00pm, finishing the day with an evening reception in the Legislative Dining Room from5:00pm-7:00pm.RSVP directly to Ashley Rensler at ashley (at) impactcanada.com.When you are RSVPing please include the following:– Full name– Business name– Whether you will be participating in both the meetings and the evening reception– Business postal code– Home postal code– Cell phone numberHope to see you there!
