A request from the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce has yielded positive success. They asked Chambers across the province to write to local MPs to persuade the Trudeau government not to implement a tax on health and dental benefits which would prevent many employers from providing this coverage. Northern Chambers sent letters to MP Niki Ashton and encouraged their members to do the same. Manitoba Chambers President Chuck Davidson says the campaign yielded positive results. He says the Chambers across both Manitoba as well as Canada stepped up and expressed their concern about the potential impact this was going to have on small businesses. Davidson adds this has shown what can be accomplished by Chambers of Commerce when they have a common goal and message.
