Joint letter to the Minister of Finance about helping small businesses

This was posted more than 12 months ago. The information may be outdated.

In my role as the NDP Spokesperson on Finance, I wrote this joint letter with my colleague MP Gord Johns (Courtenay-Alberni) and NDP Spokesperson Critic for Economic Development, Small Business and Tourism. We are proposing that the federal government underpin the survival of small business with a commercial rent abatement program that shares the burden between tenants, landlords, and the federal government.
