Change in Canadian Tax Code: Affects Future of Family Farming and all Small Business
My friend, Janet’s husband, John Howard, is the Managing Partner of the Howard Gardiner Associates GROUP CA CPA. They are champions of small business. Since the Liberal announcement in July, they have been relentless on social media addressing the myths perpetrated by Finance Minister Bill Morneau and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Janet has not seen John this upset since the National Energy Program introduction by Pierre Elliott Trudeau in October 1980. Follow QUENTIN GARDINER on twitter. This is an issue that has hit a core nerve and at the very heart of every hard working small business owner across our vast and proud Canadian landscape. Very much outside of the “A Canadian Foodie wheelhouse”, this plea to let your voice be heard is very much a part of the foundation of who I am as a writer, community member, and small business owner.
Change in Canadian Tax Code 2017: Teresa Spinelli, Local Small Business Owner Takes Action
