QUEEN’S PARK – In the Ontario Legislature this afternoon, Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli read a statement celebrating Small Business Week and the importance of small and medium sized businesses to Ontario’s economy. Text of Fedeli’s statement is below:
I’m proud to rise today to recognize Small Business Week on behalf of the Official Opposition and our Leader Patrick Brown.
We all know from the numbers as well as from our own experiences that Ontario’s small and medium sized businesses are vital to our economy and to our communities.
This week we’re recognizing the hard work that entrepreneurs and business owners do every day, all year long.
They and their families often make great sacrifices to build their businesses, to support their community, and to create jobs.
They are the lifeblood of our economy and a beacon of possibility.
These tremendous contributions are made in the face of great challenges, so we appreciate the dedication, the guts, the ingenuity and the straight up hard work that these business owners and employees put in every single day.
We celebrate you this week but we also want to take this occasion to let you know your concerns are being heard.
The Official Opposition will continue to fight to create the conditions which will allow you to grow and prosper.
Your success moves our whole province forward.
