(Feb. 26/14) CRFA kicked off its agenda to meet with all major Toronto mayoral candidates by hosting Councillor and former TTC Chair Karen Stintz earlier this year.
We discussed the restaurant industry’s impact on Toronto’s economy, the community-building benefits of local restaurants, and environmental issues such as Toronto’s Blue Box program and waste energy.
Councillor Stintz emphasized the need for City Hall to respond to the needs of businesses instead of putting up more obstacles. She outlined her plan to keep taxes low and help businesses create jobs.
CRFA will highlight the importance of the restaurant industry in future meetings with other candidates, and ask them how they plan to help our members.
