“Small businesses play a paramount role in B.C.’s community life and economic vibrancy. The hard work of small business owners and operators is the driving force for our province’s economy, providing nearly half of all private-sector jobs in B.C. from more than 382,000 small businesses.
“New Democrats see the importance of a healthy small business sector in our province and are working hard to ensure that small businesses are treated fairly, supported, and have access to the resources they need to help them grow and succeed.
“On behalf of the B.C. New Democrats, I want to thank the many small businesses that contribute so much to our province.”
