While we prepare ourselves to restart our lives, it’s time to slow down and reconsider our buying habits, as economies scramble in the times of need, it becomes a responsibility as citizens to promote local business to help governments set back on track again and with Canada Day this week, what better way to prove? That we love our homes and the people. Buying local and less is the way in future it seems.
