Non-profit organizations and tourism based businesses in our region are feeling the pinch due to COVID-19. They’ve turned to the Algoma-Manitoulin-Kapuskasing MP for help. Carol Hughes says even though the Federal Government has made changes to the C-E-R-B program there are still some that are falling through the cracks.
“The golden age clubs and the legions and those organizations who are not providing services right now,” she said. “We don’t see where they fit into these measures so we are pressuring the government to make sure they help has many groups as they can.”
Hughes says the NDP have reminded the Liberals that they need a broader brush of support.
“Lets make sure everyone has support and not just dishing this out a little at a time like they have over the last couple of months,” she noted. “There are still a lot of people and groups that are going through some tough times.”
