Bombardier Inc., one of the largest industrial employers in both Canada and Europe, said it suspended all production at rail-equipment plants in Crespin, France, and Bruges, Belgium. Its Canadian manufacturing sites, including business jet and rail-equipment factories in Quebec and Ontario, remain open with additional cleaning and disinfection measures in place, the company said. Even as Ottawa decides how it will support workers and employers, some businesses are vowing to continue to pay the wages of laid-off staff. And businesses of all stripes are focused on the worries of cash flow over the coming weeks.

Businesses have taken huge numbers of precautions to protect their customers and their staff. I’m not for a second suggesting that there’s no risk in a small retailer. But independent businesses are being shut down not because the business activity is more risky than other activities, but to send a message to the public. That’s what’s really upset the small business community so much. And then on top of that to have these restrictions put in place with such an arbitrary saw-off” External link

Even as Ottawa decides how it will support workers and employers, some businesses are vowing to continue to pay the wages of laid-off staff.
