In the past couple of months, we have had the opportunity to watch governments in the news both here and abroad tackle challenges. Canada clearly has some independent issues that I believe are reaching a boiling point. Watching Canada Post implode; our oil industry falter; our largest auto manufacturer propose closing their oldest and most efficient plants; and the Federal Liberals building a self-serving case to run their next election campaign on – National Pharmacare, […]
What’s next, would the labour market and unions like to take over management of all small business in Ontario? While most SME’s have had some time to prepare for the incoming minimum wage hike, the reality is many of them may be in a position where they are forced to make decisions financially to stay afloat.

Canadian small business needs to speak up and make sure someone is actually listening. The implication from Mr. Trudeau and Mr. Morneau is that most owners of small corporations in Canada are somehow ripping off the system and that is treating the rest of Canadians unfairly. There are several insinuations here and even in the 2 articles linked here that are simply false statements. Mr. Trudeau goes so far as to say that an employed […]
Concern mounts over Morneau’s proposed tax changes affecting small businesses See the Article in the Globe and Mail: https://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/concern-mounts-over-morneaus-proposed-tax-changes-affecting-small-businesses/article36123252/?utm_source=Shared+Article+Sent+to+User&utm_medium=E-mail:+Newsletters+/+E-Blasts+/+etc.&utm_campaign=Shared+Web+Article+Links Morneau and Trudeau are simply not thinking things through.
