QUEEN’S PARK — Mike Schreiner released this statement after the Premier announced a new logo for Ontario products:
“Local businesses will need more than logos to survive COVID-19.
Although I support efforts to make it easier to buy locally made products, I invite the Premier to actually attend the all-party committee meetings where businesses are clearly stating their pandemic recovery priorities.
Businesses are asking for a rent relief program that actually works and financial support to cover the cost of meeting public health guidelines.
They want a childcare and education plan so that parents can return to work.
This will require the Premier to put money on the table.
But the old Premier is back, pretending that stickers and logos alone will solve our economic challenges.”
