On March 23rd COF Board Members Terry Gibson and Phil Rosenzweig were invited to he Alberta Legislature to be there when the petition that was launched on February 3rd 2023 was tabled in the House. During that session, which turned out to be the last session of the 30th Legislature, NDP MLA for Edmonton-Riverview Lori Sigurdson was able to ask Affordability and Utilities Minister Matt Jones several questions regarding the affordability program which we see as still inherently unfair to many Owners and Tenants in Multi Family buildings.
I have not noted any continued advocacy regarding the inequitable energy rebate program since the new Premier and new cabinet were sworn in, nor I have noted any response from the COF’s last letter to the government. Has this issue gone to the back burner or am I missing something?
Government is working at their own agenda right now and on their own timing. Hope you saw Premier Smith’s marching orders letter to all her ministers which lists affordability as a top priority to for all departments.
We are sending another letter to Matt Jones and asking him for a Zoom conversation hopefully Tuesday morning. (You are copied on it- will send via email this morning)
