This government has failed the small businesses of Ontario. Many of London's local businesses are at risk of not making it through a fourth wave. We need immediate supports for small businesses and workers now!
The long, painful lockdown was the result of this government's poor pandemic choices — not the choices of local business owners. We need a package to champion local businesses so we can keep workers on the payroll, help businesses make it, rebuild Ontario’s battered main streets, and help entrepreneurs keep their dreams alive. I'm calling for:
- A vastly improved third round of Ontario Small Business Support Grant payments
- A $1,000 tourism and local restaurant tax credit
- Targeted support for personal care businesses
- Access to forgivable loans
We can also support our local businesses. Today, I'm asking you to take the pledge to #ShopLocal whenever you can. If you agree, please add your name below.
