MEDIA RELEASE: Provincial Business Advocates Celebrate Cutting Red Tape at Remo Ferri Auto Dealership

VAUGHAN, ON December 13, 2019 – The Vaughan Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Trillium Automobile Dealers Association, gathered at the Remo Ferri Vaughan Chrysler Dodge Jeep showroom for a meeting with Hon. Michael Tibollo, Minister and MPPP for Vaughan-Woodbridge and MPP Mike Harris. The meeting was to celebrate the Ontario Government implementing aspects of Bill 50, to allow auto dealers to register and license vehicles electronically.

“Many regulations are in place for good reasons, like those that protect health, safety and the environment,” said Michael Tibollo, MPP for Vaughan-Woodbridge. “However, decades of government regulation have resulted in rules that are duplicative, outdated or unclear, causing businesses to spend time and money complying with rules that simply could be better. Through legislation such as Bill 50, we’re ensuring that Ontario’s regulations are effective, targeted, clear and focused — while maintaining Ontario’s high standards.”
– Michael Tibollo, MPP for Vaughan-Woodbridge.

“The Spring 2020 Digital Dealer Registration Pilot Project will implement key provisions of my private member’s bill, Bill 50, and allow Ontario’s auto dealers to register newly purchased vehicles in-house, making dealerships like Vaughan Chrysler Dodge Jeep one stop shops. I am grateful that I’ve had the support of the Vaughan Chamber of Commerce and their President Brian Shifman right from day one. Digital Dealer Registration is good for business, great for consumers, and will bring Ontario’s automotive industry into the twenty-first century.”
– Mike Harris, MPP for Kitchener-Conestoga, Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry.

“I’m happy the Ontario Government is rolling out the Digital Dealer Registration Pilot Project next year. This will be a more efficient system and will allow both us as the dealer and customers to save time and avoid unnecessary delays when customers take delivery of their vehicles.”
– Remo Ferri, President of R. Ferri Automotive.

“This legislation is a positive development for consumers and businesses. It removes unnecessary red tape for the business by speeding the process for registering a new vehicle and taking it off the lot. Through the new legislation, auto dealers can adapt to the 21 st century reality of instant access that consumers have come to expect from all businesses. The Vaughan Chamber has supported this legislation for a number of years and we are extremely pleased to come into fruition.”
– Brian Shifman, President and CEO of the Vaughan Chamber of Commerce.

“The Trillium Automobile Dealers Association appreciates MPPs Mike Harris and Michael Tibollo for visiting Vaughan Chrysler Dodge Jeep to reinforce their commitment to cutting red tape for consumers and auto dealers. Through tireless efforts to advance his Bill 50, MPP Harris has been instrumental in making in-dealership licensing a reality. His hard work has paid off by the Ontario Government announcing a pilot project to be rolled out next Spring.”
– Frank Notte, Director of Government Relations Trillium Automobile Dealers Association
