“Terraces, things have to move in the coming weeks,” said Restaurant Canada, which fears the worst for independent restaurants in the next six months.
For [la réouverture] The dining rooms, in six months’ time, are over, ”said Oliver Bourbe, vice president of federal affairs and vice president of restaurants in Quebec, Canada.
According to him, its members currently survive due to three concessions, namely Assistance on Areas on Maximum Alert (AERAM), Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (SSUC) and Canada Emergency Rent Grant (SUCL).
For the latter, Mr. Bourbeau planned his stop in September. “Anytime we close and there are no more discounts, restaurants will come in like flies.” He said independents have even more opportunity.
The cries of the hearts of the restaurants will be felt this week. As mentioned in The Journal of Montreal On Saturday, CEOs of Cage Ox Sports and Restoration Players, as well as group Saint-Hubert presidents, rallied their voices and sought permission to reopen their companies in a “systematic and planned” manner.
Last November, restaurants found that Canada had finally closed 10,000 restaurants across the country. Considering that most restaurants across the province are closed, the vice president has no new data at this time.
In the scenario
According to Mr. Bourbeau’s statements, the scenario of negotiations with governments shows the beginning in two stages. First the terraces and dining rooms.
Even with a 9:30 pm curfew, restaurants will still be able to attract enough customers.
The vice president still wants to underline that “work well” with the Coquista government. “We have a good ear from them. Even when we can talk about terraces,” he said.
“When sanitation measures become easier, apparently, we are very positive about the idea that it is coming. It will come sooner rather than later,” he said.
Joined for this purpose, Ministry of Health and Social Services spokesman Robert Maranda did not come forward for a resumption date in Belle Province.
“We clearly do not want to go back and restrict the activities of certain sectors. That is why the cooperation of the population and traders is very important. In this regard, we would like to thank the restaurants which have been greatly involved in adhering to sanitation measures,” he wrote.
