An association defending the Canadian restaurant industry warns of the serious effects of the new restrictions imposed on Toronto, Peel Region and Ottawa.

“There will be dire consequences,” said James Rilett, vice president of Central Canada at Restaurants Canada, in an interview with Global News.

“Many restaurants have accumulated debt for seven months. Their debt is enormous. Even with government programs – in which both governments have stepped up and pledged some funding – it does nothing to deal with debt. He only looks at future expenses. “

Rilett called on the community to support their local restaurants when they can with things like take out and gift cards.

Restaurants Canada issued a statement on Friday saying it estimates restrictions on indoor dining will result in the loss of 33,000 jobs in Toronto and 14,900 in Peel Region.

“As a result, I have made the difficult decision that our tribunal needs to adjust our operations in these three centers.”

Decisions to prosecute cases that are already pending, including jury trials, will rest with individual judges, Morawetz said.

“The in-person trials without a jury and other in-person proceedings (including civil and family matters) that are forthcoming in Brampton, Toronto and Ottawa may proceed as scheduled in person if they are limited to 10 people or less in the courtroom, ”Morawetz added.

“However, efforts should be made to hear business from a distance, where possible. “
