Денис Ганьшонков started this petition to Mayor's Office, City of Toronto (Mayor of Toronto) and

Hello there. My name is Denis Ganshonkov i am the owner and operator of Ossington Stop at 1164 dundas street west. 

Over the last 6+ years i have seen the neighbourhood of little Portugal change, grow, offer opportunity, and becoming one of the coolest and diverse in the west of Toronto. But given the current uncertain times and a global pandemic, like any neighbourhood that is rooted in small independent business, little portugal may just loose establishments that once gave the neighbourhood its charm, potential and diversity. And we all need support more than ever. Most of us will not be able to make it through the winter months. 

I speak for businesses that are not part of a massive corporate group. Businesses that were built and are maintained on the backs of hard working people. The service sector deemed non essential (hair salons, book stores, shops, barbershops, beauty salons, places that offered relaxation and community) along with hospitality (bars, restaurants) have been scapegoated and many are on a brink of closures for good. We need answers, we need a fair paying field, we need financial assistance and a clear understanding of data and of the decision making process.
