The Canadian Federation of Independent Businesses (CFIB) criticized the Ontario government on Tuesday for their preferential treatment of big box stores over small businesses. “No other province has locked down small retailers while handing huge competitive advantages to big-box stores,” the CFIB stated. Doug Ford’s government has been criticized throughout the pandemic for its alleged preferential treatment of big box stores over small businesses, with many questioning why massive retailers packed with dozens of people may remain open while small businesses catering to a few customers at a time can only offer roadside pickup.
