Dear Premier Houston:

We are writing to you today representing over 4,000 downtown and main street businesses from across Nova Scotia. Many of these businesses, the lifeblood of their communities, have paid a heavy, heavy cost to not only follow, but promote, public health guidelines, in order to protect people as well as our over-extended health care system. But these businesses have existed in a seemingly endless cycle for two years now: rising cases lead to new restrictions, which leads to lost revenues, and then a need to advocate for renewed government support. The current wave has been the hardest thus far for most, as they have already seen two holiday seasons lost and are up to their eyeballs in debt, and are unsure of making payroll and rent, to say nothing of keeping their doors open for another several weeks.
