The hospitality industry is in a state of crisis and is in need of immediate and concrete support from all levels of government.
Things are harder than ever. It’s the last week of the month and things are officially desperate for me and my industry. We cannot pay full rent, pay employees, survive without CERB or enter another lockdown. Eviction ban has been lifted and it is impossible to meet our financial responsibilities the way things currently are. If something doesn’t happen this week for us, I too will be on the chopping block.
We need the Federal, Provincial and municipal government to step in NOW with a plan for fall and onward. Otherwise the entire industry risks collapse over the next 60 days.
