New CNG filling station at the Fort Erie Border Crossing

May 9, 2019. As Canadians continue to make greener choices, the Government of Canada is delivering more options for them to drive where they need to go, while reducing pollution.

   Member of Parliament for Niagara Centre, Vance Badawey, on behalf of Canada's Minister of Natural Resources, the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, today announced the opening of a natural gas station in Fort Erie. Natural Resources Canada is providing $1 million to Envoy Energy Fuels Inc. through its Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative.

   The funding is part of the government's $182.5-million investment to develop a coast-to-coast fast-charging network for EVs, establish natural gas stations along key freight corridors and open hydrogen stations in metropolitan centers. This investment will also ensure Canada–U.S. alignment of standards for low-carbon vehicles and refueling infrastructure.

   "This station provides transport companies with cleaner options to move their goods — cutting costs, reducing pollution and improving productivity. Our government is giving Canadian businesses greener choices when it comes to transportation fuels and to clean energy in general," Vance Badawey, Member of Parliament for Niagara Centre, said.

   "I am thrilled that we are able to help Truk-King Logistics lower their greenhouse gas emissions and fuel costs. Compressed natural gas as a transportation fuel is currently the only commercially viable alternative fuel for Class-8 trucks," James Ro, President, Envoy Energy added.
