In the spring, as our communities began to feel the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Official Opposition released a Saving Main Street plan. Last Friday, the working document was re-released, with updates for changed and changing conditions for small businesses and workers in our current context.
Saving Main Street: A Plan for Jobs and Financial Security for Working People offers a supportive and sustainable framework and includes:
  • Plan includes a ban on all commercial evictions,
  • a 75 per cent commercial rent subsidy,
  • sick days for all,
  • a fund to help businesses with safe-reopening costs or remote-work set-up costs,
  • more non-profit and public child care spaces for working parents,
  • and end to insurance gouging and insurance denials.
