MP Vecchio hosts Local Roundtables

February 14, 2019

ST. THOMAS, ON- On Wednesday, February 13th, Karen Vecchio, Member of Parliament hosted three separate roundtables to hear from constituents of Elgin-Middlesex-London. The roundtables included small businesses, municipal leaders and agricultural producers.

“The opportunity to hear from the participants provides me the knowledge and insight on the challenges that communities and businesses face,” stated Vecchio. The USMCA (NAFTA renegotiations), taxation, international relations, labour, housing and transportation were key issues discussed.

“It was very clear that small businesses are concerned about the increased costs of operating including the changes to the payroll taxes and the carbon tax,” Vecchio stated. “Canadians are facing a number of barriers and as elected officials we must understand these concerns and find a pathway to address them.”
