Dave Ritcey, PCs: ‘Level the playing field for small businesses’

Truro-Bible Hill-Millbrook-Salmon River MLA Dave Ritcey is standing with small business owners to ensure they are treated fairly.

“The government has decided restrictions where there are clear winners and losers,” says Ritcey. “Let’s be clear- we’re not ‘all in this together’ when small business is going extinct and entrepreneurs are on the brink of financial ruin.”

“I get calls every day from small business owners-- just asking for a fair playing field,” says Ritcey. “Businesses will disappear and personal lives will be squashed. This government inaction is destroying the lifeblood of our communities.”

Ritcey says the Rankin government needs to provide more than nice words and soft suggestions to ensure fairness to small businesses.

“Small business owners aren’t looking for special treatment, they just want to know the government has their back,” says Ritcey. “Instead, their backs are against the wall just hoping they can hold out long enough for this lockdown to come to an end.”
