The Ontario government shutdown policy is killing small businesses. Small businesses are going bankrupt at alarming and unprecedented rates as they are unable to generate revenue and earn a living in the prolonged shutdown period. We want to make a change as hundreds of thousands of people are struggling to stay afloat for a policy that is not effective in what it’s trying to do. We believe Ontarians should care even if they’re not being directly impacted, as their friends, neighbours, and community are being severely affected by this ill-thought-out policy. We need to educate, create awareness, and shift opinion to persuade the Ontario government into rethinking their approach to finding a balance between keeping people safe and allowing small businesses to survive. 

Highlights:

- The evident increase in business closures due to the shutdown enforced by government policies

- The sad reality of high-power authorities jeopardizing small businesses' careers as a convenient way to tell people to stay home

- The impressive contributions Ontario small businesses provide to their communities and the strong reliance of the Canada’s economy on small business

- The jeopardization of mental health forced upon small business workers, as prolonged financial stress caused by the pandemic shutdown increases the risk of suicide
