GUELPH, ON — Mike Schreiner released the following statement:
“I am repeating a call I made on April 24 for the province to help those small businesses left out of the commercial rent relief program.
Some landlords refuse to participate in the rent subsidy program, leaving local businesses extremely vulnerable to eviction.
Doug Ford can prevent an exodus of small businesses from Ontario’s main streets with a simple order to halt commercial evictions.
It’s the job of the province to help those who are falling through the cracks of federal programs.
The Premier has always talked about being “open for business.”
Without decisive action, he is actually putting people out of business.”
