To Premier Doug Ford:

I understand. The health and safety of Ontarians is your number one priority. That makes sense.

Keeping small businesses across the province in lockdown is crushing our local economies.

Continuing to keep our stores, our gyms, our salons and countless other businesses closed means thousands will not survive. Business owners and their families will lose their futures and many will lose their homes. Employees will lose their livelihoods. Our communities will lose their rich diversity.

I urge you to adopt CFIB’s “Small Business First” allowing small businesses to reopen with at least a 20 per cent capacity limit.

We need a change ASAP before it’s too late and we lose these businesses for good.

We must move beyond the “all or nothing” lockdown approach that is leaving our local economies behind.  Ontarians need jobs to come back to when this is all over!

 Let’s show the Ontario Spirit and save our local businesses!
