Joint letter regarding the Canada Emergency Commercial Rent Assistance (CECRA) for small businesses

Here is the letter NDP Critic for Small Business and Tourism, Gord Johns and I as the NDP Spokesperson on Finance wrote to Minister Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade in response to the announcements made last week about the Canada Emergency Commercial Rent Assistance (CECRA) for small businesses. While we welcome the initiative, as the NDP had called for in our April 10 letter, the program as announced does not do enough to support small businesses.
