This morning, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau unveiled the new Canada Emergency Commercial Rent Assistance Program, providing some relief to small businesses. On the heels of the announcement, Ontario indicated that they would be providing millions to the plan as well. This comes as welcome news, but is it enough? Before the program was in place, Toronto city councillor Paula Fletcher warned that if help didn't come, soon, more than half of businesses on our main streets would have to close permanently.
