Ottawa South By-election candidate response on aggregates issues

July 29, 2013

As part of our outreach efforts, OSSGA members and staff sent a letter of introduction to the candidates from all three major political parties in each of the five Ontario by-elections taking place on August 1, 2013. 
The five constituencies that will be electing a new MPP on August 1st are: Etobicoke-Lakeshore, London West, Ottawa South, Scarborough-Guildwood and Windsor-Tecumseh.
After a conversation with OSSGA, the following statement was received from the Matt Young (PC) campaign in Ottawa South:

The stability of the construction industry is a fundamental corner stone of rebuilding Ontario -- and we recognize that aggregate resources are integral in this industry. Jobs can only be created across Ontario when job-creators like your members are given an economic environment in which to thrive -- lower taxes, lower energy rates, less government waste to allow funding of necessary infrastructure projects.

Continuing dialogue between the OSSGA and other industry associations with MPPs is one which Matt not only encourages, but believes mandatory to move Ontario forward. He very much looks forward to this when he is the representative from Ottawa South in the Provincial Legislature.

Again thank you, and best wishes to you and your members.
