-Impose severe penalties on gas station employers who force attendants to pay for 'gas and dash' thefts out of their wages.
-Require pre-payment for gas before pumping;
-Call for the suspension of drivers licenses for individuals convicted of gas theft.
The full bill is available as a PDF below. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions please contact my Queen's Park office at 416-314-6467
