URGENT REQUEST FOR APRIL 1st SMALL BUSINESS RELIEF
Dear Prime Minister Trudeau, Premier Ford and Mayor Tory,
I am sure you agree that small businesses play a vital role in supporting our local economies and the Canadian way of life. Over the past several years this group has been largely overlooked – BUT now is the time they need you more than ever. Their survival is imperative as this group of people will play a vital role in rebuilding our amazing country and bringing back community “spirit” and togetherness when this pandemic and physical distancing is over.
Small businesses employ millions of Canadians and help serve as the backbone of community and economic life. If these businesses aren’t saved from ruin over the next few months, local businesses will need to be rebuilt from scratch with new owners and “neighbourhoods” will suffer for years to come.
Immediate Request (needed NOW)
Medium/Long-Term Recommendation – Main Street Bailout
Only strong immediate action by governments, large financial institutions and insurance companies will ensure Canada’s small businesses survive this devastating time. In order to ensure small businesses not only survive, but can thrive when physical distancing is over, we encourage you to consider the full proposal for a Main Street Bailout (savesmallbusiness.ca).
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter and taking the immediate action needed.

On June 4, 2019, the Ontario Government passed the “Getting Ontario Moving Act,” which assigns responsibility for planning some rapid transit in Toronto to the Province of Ontario. As a result, the Relief Line project has now been replaced by the Ontario Line project. With this change, Metrolinx will lead a renewed consultation and exploration process, which will also include additional Environmental Assessment work. As this new process gets underway, we hope that you will continue to participate in engagement opportunities.
Metrolinx is hosting four public open houses to introduce the Ontario Line later this month. Fifteen potential stations are proposed between Ontario Place and Ontario Science Centre, with links to GO Transit, the Eglinton Crosstown LRT, and TTC Lines 1 and 2. The objective of the information sessions will be to provide the public with an overview of the project, the process, and information on future engagement opportunities.
The information sessions will be hosted in the last two weeks of January. The same information will be available at each event. Details of the sessions are below, and included in the flyer.
Public Open Houses
Date: Thursday, January 23rd
