Several items of interest at Queen’s Park today. Here from the Queen’s Park Update:
The House will convene at 9:00 a.m. to begin second reading debate on Bill 153,
Complying with International Trade Obligations Act, 2013. Energy Minister Bob
Chiarelliʼs (Ottawa West—Nepean) bill would, if passed, end the Minister of Energyʼs
domestic content requirements under the province’s Feed-in Tariff Program.
The afternoon is scheduled for opposition day debate. PC Finance critic Vic Fedeli
(Nipissing) will put forward a motion calling on the Premier to not introduce or raise any
taxes, including – but not limited to – the gas tax, payroll taxes and corporate tax rates.
The motion will be debated and voted on.
We believe PC Energy Critic Lisa MacLeod will be speaking on the Green Energy Act.
