From Chetwynd Chamber of Commerce
As you all know, we have been working closely with our provincial Chambers and federal counterparts on the Proposed Tax changes. Small business is the backbone of our community and we need to show our support. The Chetwynd Chamber of Commerce and our network across BC and Canada is asking your to add your voice to those of concerned Canadians. We want the government to put these changes on hold to avoid hurting our small businesses.
I am sharing with you the Petition Challenge. While there are several petitions out there, it would be helpful if you could also add your signature to this one as well. If every chamber could get 100 supporters to sign the petition – we’d be at 12,000 signatures from BC alone. Here’s the link: http://bit.ly/2fuq0BL.
We will also be sharing this through our social media channels using the hashtags #ProtectGrowth and #ShowGrit and encourage you to do the same.
