As you've heard and as you might expect, Moose Jaw city council has been criticized for their decision to give a new venture a property tax break in exchange for starting up in our city.
The Moose Jaw & District Chamber of Commerce is in favour. CEO Rob Clark penned a letter this week, congratulating city council on the decision, saying the support for Imperial Distillery gives Moose Jaw "momentum as a city of choice for investors" and "adds to our growing economy."
Mr. Clark also writes, "The City of Moose Jaw along with our business community continue to make an effort to accelerate economic growth" and "...our new partnership with Imperial Distillery brings confidence and sustenance to our vision of the future..."
"Again", the news release reads, "congratulations on being a progressive advocate and voice on behalf of our member businesses, community and organizations. We look forward to what other great initiatives are to come."
Two things. I thought you might like to know about this letter of support and, it sounds to me like the Chamber is expecting more good news in the near future.
