Thank you to @cp24breakingnews for bringing coverage on the issues small businesses face during these restrictions and closures.
We are thankful to Ginger of @theedmundburke @offthehookfishbar & our Board Chair Albert of @der.dietemann for speaking with them on this topic.
There are a great many hidden costs for these small businesses that aren’t evident and are still incurred even during times of closures for restaurants. Even for businesses that operate at 50% capacity, expenses can amount. It is important that these aides put in place by the government are taking these expenses into consideration - but to also note the difference of cost depending on the city you operate from. Toronto being the highest in cost of living.
