High energy costs, incoming cap and trade, and onerous regulations continue to hold back jobs.
 
(QUEENS PARK, ON) –This morning at Question Period, Lambton-Kent-Middlesex MPP, Monte McNaughton continued to advocate on behalf of Ontario’s small and mid-sized manufacturers while asking important questions of Ontario Minister of Economic Development & Growth Brad Duguid.
 
“Over the last several weeks I have questioned the Minister about the plight of smaller manufacturers struggling with energy costs,” said McNaughton. “Small companies are facing the same obstacles as large multinationals including incredibly high energy costs, incoming cap and trade costs, and onerous regulations which are often redundant and unnecessary.”
 
Over 80% of Ontario’s manufacturers employ 50 people or less, but reports have shown that the majority of economic and business supports coming from this government are instead directed at large, multi-national corporations.
 
“With a provincial debt that recently blew past $300 billion…can the Minister explain why his government thinks corporate grants to the largest companies in Ontario are a better plan for our economy than creating a level playing field where businesses of all sizes can be competitive and succeed?” questioned McNaughton.
 
On the subject of onerous and unnecessary regulations and requirements, McNaughton took the time to discuss one company who was told they would need to spend over $60,000 to eva luate plant emissions, and then freeze their operations for three years while they waited for government bureaucrats to review the report and make a decision.
 
“Small and medium-sized businesses often describe dealing with the Wynne-government as death by a thousand cuts,” said McNaughton. “The first step to finding a solution is admitting you have a problem. When will the Minister finally acknowledge that the Wynne-government is placing an unreasonable burden on small and mid-sized businesses?”
