Greg Wilson, director of government relations for the Retail Council of Canada, told The Chief that while many businesses are too busy trying to survive to be reflective, most would agree that there has been a lot of change in a short period of time.

“The one constant is that there has been change,” he said, adding that the understanding of the virus and thus the restrictions around it have shifted month to month.

“There’s a lot more emphasis now on transmission through droplets in the air versus touch, and so that has changed how people have done things,” he said.

Some businesses that sell the same products as others in other communities have survived the pandemic much differently, Wilson noted.
