MPP Say Port Albert General Store Blames Liberals For Winter Closure

Huron Bruce MPP Lisa Thompson says a local store is closing its doors for the winter for the first time in more than 150 years due to Liberal Government policies.

Thompson told question period today that the Port Albert General Store also announced a ban for Deputy Premier Deb Matthews who frequents the store during the summer.

Thompson says Ontario small businesses employ nearly 3 million workers but are struggling under increased costs under the Liberals.

She points to skyrocketing hydro rates, red tape, cap-and-trade, or a rushed minimum wage policy.
