Mississauga Board of Trade Extremely Disappointed
on Move to Grey-Lockdown Level
Mississauga, Ontario – March 5, 2021 — Today, the Mississauga Board of Trade (MBOT) expressed its deep disappointment on the Government of Ontario’s decision to place Peel Region in the Grey-lockdown level after the Stay at Home Emergency Order ends on March 8, 2021.
“This announcement is yet another blow to hundreds of businesses in Mississauga that will not be able to re-open for the foreseeable future,” said David Wojcik, President & CEO, MBOT. “For some this will be close to four months of a complete shutdown. The Ontario Government owes these businesses further financial compensation and quite frankly a huge apology.”
While COVID numbers in the City of Mississauga are the lowest in many months and the very businesses who are not contributing to COVID cases has been closed, the Government continues to shutter them.
“We called on Mississauga to be separated from Peel in determining the colour-code framework. That should have happened today. We call again on the Province to separate Mississauga out so our businesses can re-open safely,” concluded Mr. Wojcik.
