Thanks @steeletalk for having #CFIB on to talk! Government doesn't always get it right, especially when Orders pick "winners" and "losers". Glad to see businesses like @RioTheatre findings ways to reopen, & hoping BC Gov can look at wording of Orders to maximize fairness.
The Canadian economy is recovering, but how fast it recovers depends on vaccination rates. For many #businesses, waiting is not an option. Here are 3 ways #businessowners can increase cash flow for their businesses:

Another #CFIB 50th Anniversary story. CFIB broke even in 1972 after 15 months, but not big enough to pay me a salary. Started an entrepreneurship research center at Ryerson University. Goal. Teach #Entrepreneurship at colleges and #universities across #Canada. Successful.
Here's a fun #CFIB story. 1971. Crawled over desk to get to chair. Members supplied old furniture. Member called. "Do you need a secretary?" She was excellent but kept falling asleep. She was also a private dick taking photos at night of couples coming out of motel rooms.
Another #CFIB story. Had the highest public profile in #Canada in 1971, but facing failure. Up at 3:00 am. Mary asked what's wrong? "If I could only figure out how to get our revenues up to $2000 a week, I think we will have created a company." I did but not alone.
More #CFIB. I bought our first building in 1972 with my father providing a mortgage. Our tenant was Ted Rogers (Rogers Stadium). No cash to travel to Ottawa, so Ted and I created a cable interview show that brought the politicians to me. It was called "Bullseye Ottawa".
@evoLEASEtion @cfibsk @CFIB In 1977, when I knew CFIB was going to a strong national voice, I started to hire permanent staff based on the telephone messages on my desk. The biggest line of tabs was from members needing advice and support. Those Member Counsellors had to be highly qualified. #CFIB
50 years ago I launched the #CFIB ( #Canadian Federation of Independent Business). Father ( #Toronto photo) guaranteed the lease, my operating loan, and slipped me money when I could not cover my mortgage. Today CFIB is helping #SmallBusiness survive the #pandemic.
@Mike30Trill @thereds8 Maybe the rich will take future risks in Covid19-impacted sectors, but can we expect to see regular Cdns spending their life savings, mortgaging their homes & giving up their full-time jobs for life as an entrepreneur after this?
I think it’s unlikely...

@CFIB #CFIB Why is no mention made of what small business considers abuse inflicted on them by MPAC? Why is no-one helping us, speaking for us? We don't have a problem paying our share, but now we are paying more twice as much as can be expected from us. Tell MPAC to back off!
Thanks to the many #farmers who became new #CFIB members or renewed their membership in 2020! Our hard working field staff have been busy this year sharing #CFIB’s work on the business issues of agriculture. #inspiring #CdnAg #WestCdnAg #OntAg @mgpaquette @KentMcDougall
#CFIB data also shows #farmers on average pay almost $14,000/yr in federal carbon taxes. Hopeful news that MPs from the Liberal, New Democrat and Bloc Quebecois parties expressed support for Bill C-206.
