The full version:
The Canadian Federation of Independent Business wants all small business owners to log on and sign their petition to the Federal Government asking for what small businesses need to recover from the impact of COVID-19.
The CFIB says that there is growing anger among Canadian small business owners because many are slipping through the cracks between the various assistance programs. They estimate that 158,000 small businesses (1 in 7) will have to close unless something is done to help them.
They’re aiming for 20,000 signatures and currently have just over 7,000. The petition on the CFIB website details what they are asking for.
