Conservatives call for extended COVID-19 support for small business – November 3, 2020



At a news conference on Parliament Hill, Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole discusses his party’s opposition day motion, which is set to be debated in the House of Commons. The Conservatives are calling for the federal government to pause, until at least June 2021, audits of any small businesses that received the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The party also wants the government to provide greater flexibility in the Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy, the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy, and other COVID-19 economic assistance programs.
