Local business needs an immediate injection of cash.
May 1st rent is coming due for businesses and a loan of $40,000 (if they qualified) won’t pay the bills for March, April, May, and beyond. The wage subsidy helps (if they qualified and) if their business hasn’t been shut down.

Workers need wages and entrepreneurs need cash now! The government must:
✅ Allow small business operators to get the CEWS directly from local financial institutions this week.
✅ Make the CEBA funds accessible to more businesses.
I spoke with Bruce Wylie at 104.9 JRFM about getting funds to businesses now.
Christ is risen, Alleluia! A little different having Easter mass live streamed on Facebook, but thanks to Fr. Julius Nwagbara and Deacon Mark Mawson for celebrating with us. Happy Easter! ✝️💐
