During a virtual press conference, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh discusses the need to provide more support to small businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. He is joined by NDP MP Brian Masse (Windsor West), NDP candidate for Essex and former MP Tracey Ramsey, and Essex small business owner Michelle Rawlins. The NDP has called for the implementation of an excess profit tax for big corporations. The party says the estimated $8 billion in federal government revenue that this tax would generate can be used to help small businesses.
