CPP and inter-provincial trade are key issues for small business, should be for premiers
Winnipeg, July 20, 2016 – Senior officials from the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) will be available to comment on various important issues being discussed by Canada’s premiers this week at the Council of the Federation meeting in Whitehorse.
Last week, CFIB sent a letter to premiers, urging them to:
“With a sluggish economy, small business owners are looking for our premiers to put forward policies that support a healthy business climate,” said CFIB executive vice-president Laura Jones. “The Agreement on Internal Trade and the hastily-planned deal to expand CPP are at opposite ends of that spectrum. We’d like to see one come and one go.”
