GNCC wants Ottawa to consider regional approach to reopening border
While we wait to hear from the premier on whether we can enter phase two of the province's reopening plan, a local business group is advocating for a reopening of the Canada- U.S. border.
Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce President Mishka Balsom says they would like to see the federal governments on both sides consider a regional approach to reopening the border.
Balsom points to Europe as an example which is starting to reopen borders between countries.
She says we can learn from them because they are ahead of us in dealing with the pandemic.
The GNCC chief notes the border closure has been devastating for tourism operators as well as some businesses that have been unable to get stock because of interruptions to the supply chain.
