Statement made on 30 November 2010 by Senator Catherine Callbeck

Hon. Catherine S. Callbeck:

Honourable senators, my question is to the Leader of the Government in the Senate. Last Thursday, I participated in a small business round table for young entrepreneurs. They brought forward many good ideas and concerns to help small business. One concern raised was that the Canada Revenue Agency website is not user friendly and takes too long to find specific information. These young people do not have that kind of time when they are trying to meet the challenges of running small businesses.

Some of them have complained to the CRA, but there have not been any changes. Would the leader please speak to the Minister of National Revenue regarding that website so it can be made user friendly and, therefore, help our young entrepreneurs and all small businesses?
