Stittsville, Ontario (January 22, 2018) – Small businesses, many of which are family-owned and operated, are struggling just to make ends meet. The Wynne Liberals’ policies have hurt the economy, increased the cost of running a business, and made it impossible to thrive and grow in Ontario.

Goldie Ghamari, Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario Candidate for Carleton, announced the launch of “Carleton Conversations” in 2017, a series of talks with Goldie about issues that matter to the residents of Carleton.

The fourth in the series will be “Talk with Goldie about Small Business” with special guest Steve Clark, MPP.

“Small to medium-sized businesses are the economic engine that create wealth and jobs, provide a higher standard of living, better and broader health-related services, opportunity, and security for all Ontarians. Ontario’s future depends on the success of your business, and I want to know what I can do to help you.”

  • Goldie Ghamari, Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario Candidate for Carleton


  • Small businesses employ nearly 3,000,000 hard-working Ontarians.
  • 35% of small business owners would consider selling, closing, or moving outside Ontario.
  • 1 in 20 Ontario businesses expect to close in the next 5 years just due to unaffordable hydro rates.
  • Ontario has over 380,000 regulations, resulting in unnecessary expenses and red tape for businesses.
