This Friday HPPH will choose between starting to shut down restaurants, or providing the manpower for their own mandate. Ma & Pa restaurants simply can’t afford to hire the staff needed, as they fell through the cracks and get zero government support. These Ma & Pa shops are all expected to collect & remit HST to help pay for 75% wage subsidies of their national franchised competition, even though many Ma & Pa owners have not been paid since the first lockdown and needed to exhaust their life’s savings to survive.
Buck & Jo’s, a restaurant in Wingham, has been standing their ground and video recording all interactions with authorities. If you already watched the full length videos, you will have noticed the police and Huron Perth Public Health all refuse to answer questions or show photo ID.
