New Years Resolution: Support Our Economy
The consequences of bypassing local business
It’s time to get serious about how local governments spend taxpayer dollars. In their December 21 issue, the Eganville Leader printed an editorial about the importance of local governments supporting local businesses. Specifically, the Leader referenced a decision by the County of Renfrew to end a 40-year relationship with a local pharmacy (Mulvhill Drug Mart) for pharmacy services to Miramichi Lodge in favour of MediSystem Pharmacy, the Loblaws/Shoppers Drug Mart conglomerate. The decision was made using an evaluation form and the local pharmacy wasn’t even close - scoring 19 points less than MediSystem.
