WILLIAMS LAKE (October 2, 2019) – During the month of October, members of the BC Liberal Caucus will join British Columbians in celebrating the small and medium-sized business sector in our province.
“We want to recognize the vital contribution that small and medium-sized businesses make to the fabric of our economy and to our local communities,” says BC Liberal Small Business Critic and Cariboo North MLA Coralee Oakes.
“Government has an important role to play to promote entrepreneurship and enable small and medium-sized businesses to flourish and provide more employment opportunities. This can be done by removing the burden of unnecessary and restrictive red tape and encouraging a competitive marketplace through lower taxes.
“Over one million British Columbians work in the small business sector and I encourage everyone to demonstrate their support by visiting their favourite small business and posting a picture on social media using the hashtag: #ShopSmallBiz. By showing your support for local small business – you are not only helping to promote a local entrepreneur – you are also supporting your own community and our province.”
