Small business worried about BCTF strike

The Canadian Federation of Independent Business released new survey results today about the impact of a strike by the B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) on the province’s small businesses. Forty-three per cent of business owners anticipate the strike will have a negative impact if it continues, with 47 per cent saying it would have no impact, 4 per cent saying it would be positive, and 6 per cent saying they don’t know.


The BC government has committed to bring at least one LNG (liquefied natural gas) pipeline and terminal online by 2015 and has a target of three LNG facilities by 2020. Independent studies show that if five LNG facilities were operating in B.C. by 2020 it could mean potential new government revenues in excess of $100 billion over the next 30 years.

Trade within Canada should be easier for small business

CFIB is urging provincial leaders to strengthen inter-provincial trade, support TFWP, and reject pension taxes at Council of the Federation (COTF) meeting in Charlottetown later this week.
