The recent notice of a limited strike by the longshoremen’s union, including no work at all on weekends, is devastating not only to Canada’s economic competitiveness, but also to its recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
OTTAWA, ON – November 20, 2019 – The Honourable Perrin Beatty, PC, OC, President and CEO of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, released the following statement following the Cabinet of the 43rd Parliament being sworn in.
“The Canadian Chamber of Commerce congratulates all new and continuing Cabinet ministers in this Parliament. While the make up of Parliament has changed with the federal election, the challenges Canada faces have not.
Cabinet ministers – and all Parliamentarians – were elected to govern on behalf of all Canadians, in all regions and in all sectors of the economy. Canadians, businesses and investors – at home and internationally – are watching carefully to see how they come together to secure our future.
The Canadian Chamber looks forward to working with all Ministers and parliamentarians on behalf of our members throughout Canada, those they employ and the communities where they build a more competitive Canada.”
