Support for Craft Distillers

The Enderby & District Chambers of Commerce supports  the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce in its continuing advocacy for Craft spirit producers and others in the craft economy. Yesterday, the GVCC drafted a letter to Ottawa, urging the federal government to create an environment that allows craft distilleries to thrive, create jobs and compete with their U.S. counterparts.

 

Creating excise parity does more than merely open up the world of designer beverages: it is a meaningful part of economic diversification and recovery for our region.

By creating asimilar policy to the American modelin Canada, domestic craft distilleries will have additional finances to invest in equipment and facilities as well as creating employment opportunities in numerous communities across Canada such as Vernon, Armstrong and Enderby. These entrepreneurs will also increase the demand for products and services from suppliers and particularly producers of fruit and grain.

We thank Dan Proulx, Richard Rolke from the Greater Vernon Chamber for their advocacy lead on this point, and emphasize the Enderby Chamber of Commerce’s continued commitment for diverse economic recovery options in our region.

Enderby Advocates to the Province

It may be the holiday season, but your General Manager is hard at work for Enderby business, having recently attended a multi-hour meeting with Premier John Horgan, his Executive Council and members of the provincial and federal business community. Following a very earnest conversation with Premier Horgan about the continued challenges facing rural BC, the meeting focused on an in-depth Q & A with Ministers such as

Melanie Mark, Minister of Arts, Culture, Tourism and Sport;

Murray Rankin, Minister of Indigenous Relations & Reconciliation;

Bruce Ralston, Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation;

Ravi Kahlon, Minister of Jobs, Economic Recovery & Innovation;

Rob Fleming, Minister of Transportation & Infrastructure

and others!

Questions were asked regarding continued support of arts, culture and tourism through the continuing pandemic, ability to support indigenous communities to train, retrain, develop entrepreneurial enterprise and how we can reach new synergies as a community; questions about environmental reclamation, green energy solutions and diversifying the forest and mining industries; questions about road and bridge maintenance; and last but not least, the continued provincial support of workers and small businesses as the economy struggles to find its new footing in the post-COVID-19 world.

I am pleased to announce that good relationships were formed as a result of this meeting, which will be used to good advantage for our citizens, business owners and workers in the next term of John Horgan’s NDP government.
