The Member of Parliament for Dufferin-Caledon, Kyle Seeback, is asking constituents to nominate small local businesses that have earned recognition. Twice a week, he will be featuring two of these businesses on his Facebook and Instagram pages.

“We’ve recently celebrated small business week”, said Seeback, “but COVID has been really tough on our businesses, so I don’t think a week is enough”.

During the Business Tour Week that MP Seeback performed during the summer, he visited many small businesses and farms from across the riding. Seeback learnt of many challenges that they were experiencing due to COVID-19. A video related to this endeavour got over 4400 views on Facebook alone.

Back in August, Dufferin News asked MP Kyle Seeback about the biggest flaw in the federal government’s response to the COVID-19 epidemic. He emphasized the lack of support for farmers, who have experienced a variety of difficulties. Dufferin County is home to many farms and agriculture-based businesses, and MP Seeback has consistently highlighted the need to support them throughout the crisis.

“Our farmers are really having a hard time, and there has been almost no support that’s been put forward by the government for farmers. That is a massive fail that we’re going to feel the effects of down the road,” stated Dufferin-Caledon MP Seeback.

Recently, the Dufferin-Caledon MP has been on a big push to get better internet service in rural areas. Kyle Seeback notes how integral this is to the success of businesses, now more than ever, and has even suggested making broadband internet an essential service. MP Seeback was also accepting questions that he could pose to the Minister of Rural Broadband this week. During the Question Period held on October 24, Kyle Seeback included the following statement in his question regarding the timing of better internet service coming to the rural areas of Dufferin-Caledon and the rest of the country.

“My constituents don’t want to hear what has been done. They don’t want to hear about how more fiber was put in by Stephen Harper or John A. MacDonald. They want an answer.”
