The Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce was one of many Chambers across the country that joined the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in writing an open letter to our elected officials in response to the ongoing blockades happening across Canada.
In the letter, the Chambers called upon our elected representatives to expeditiously take the following actions:
- Deliver a strong and unified commitment from the Prime Minister, Premiers, Opposition Party Leaders, and Mayors that the rule of law will be upheld.
- Urgently enact measures to protect critical infrastructure to ensure further closures do not take place elsewhere in the country in the days ahead.
- Seek immediate injunctive measures through the courts to assert a clear message that lawlessness will not be tolerated.
- Ensure law enforcement agencies have all the necessary political support and appropriate tools needed to restore public order and remove any physical blockades that are not dismantled voluntarily.
