June 1 is only one week away, small business owners, many of them have already deferred their April and May rents, are now once again worrying how they are going to pay for their June rent. Here is the letter MP Gord Johns (Courtenay-Alberni) NDP Critic for Small Business, and I wrote a joint letter to letter to the Finance Minister and to the Minister of Small Business.
NDP Critic for Canadian Heritage Peter Julian issued the following statement:
"It has come to our attention that a consultant for a federally funded anti-racism project has a disturbing track record of spewing hate speech online against Jewish and francophone communities. This is completely unacceptable. We call on the Minister of Heritage to take drastic action and terminate his contract.
