OCSA Lobby Day at Queen’s Park

The Ontario Convenience Stores Association hosted a very successful lobby day at Queen’s Park on Wednesday, October 30th.

Retailers from across the province had one-on-one meetings with over 32 MPPs to discuss key issues the convenience store sector faces in Ontario.  The four areas addressed were:  contraband tobacco, the ability to sell beer and wine in convenience stores, providing healthy choices and minimum wage requirements.

The OCSA and retailers took their message directly to Queen’s Park in order to communicate the importance of our industry and the significance of our contributions to the economy.

25 retailers volunteered to join us and we are appreciative for their time and efforts.  Retailer participants included 7-Eleven, Mac’s Convenience Stores, Petro Canada, Quickie Convenience Stores, Little Short Stop, Hasty Market, MacEwen, Avondale, Big Bee, Kitchen Food Fair, Rabba Fine Foods, Pioneer Energy, the OKBA, Gateway Newstands, Nicholby’s, Midway Convenience and New York Newstands.

The retailers were well received by the MPPs and were encouraged by the support that they received from the MPPs.
