The OCSA has worked on the gas theft issue for a number of years years in order to protect the customers and employees at the gas stations.
Today MPP Deepak Anand reintroduced ‘Protecting Ontarians by Enhancing Gas Station Safety to Prevent Gas and Dash Act 2023’.
Once passed, this bill will provide workplace safety to gas station owners and employees & protect innocent bystanders from risk of gas thefts and drive offs.
The OCSA has been the driving force of this Bill in conjunction with the Chiefs of Police Association and pleased to see the support of all parties at Queens Park.
Soon we will see a level playing field for all independent gas sites in Ontario and eliminate small business losses while freeing up police services in the province.
The members of the OCSA appreciates the support and recognition by the Ford government on this growing gas theft issue in every community.
