New Davenport NDP MP Andrew Cash fighting for justice for Toronto business owners affected by the G20

Ottawa agrees to review G20 claims from Toronto business owners - thestar.com

NDP MP Andrew Cash (Davenport) accused the government of trying to
bury businesses in paperwork hoping they will “just quietly go away.”

“Toronto businesses inside and around the G20 zone suffered millions
in damages and they are not going away,” Cash said during Question
Period. “It has now been a year without compensation and these folks are
still suffering.”

Baird responded that Cash had “raised a legitimate concern about the adequacy of the funding and are the rules too strict.”

“I am certainly prepared to review that,” he said.
