An Open Letter to Premier Ford

Guelph MPP Mike Schreiner calls for targeted closures and small business aid

For Immediate Release - October 9, 2020

In an open letter sent to Premier Ford this morning, Guelph MPP Mike Schreiner asked him to respond urgently to record COVID-19 case numbers and listen to the advice of health officials by imposing a targeted closure of businesses in hotspot regions. 

Schreiner recommended the Premier to support small businesses through these closures with four concrete actions:

1. Provide financial grants to affected small businesses, comparable to the $15,000 grants that Quebec is providing;

2. Give 3-5 days notice to affected businesses so they can prepare for the closure;

3. Ensure that any shutdown does not provide an unfair advantage to big businesses or box stores; and

4. Fix the rent relief program so that small businesses can apply directly.
