Last week, a private members’ bill was introduced during the BC Government Legislature session. The purpose of the bill was to temporarily cap fees that third-party companies can charge restaurants to deliver food. Immediate relief is needed to place a cap on fees that third-party delivery companies are permitted to charge restaurants to deliver food.
“Restaurants, and in general the food and beverage industry, continue to be negatively impacted by understandable health & safety orders, reduced seating capacity, and additional costs of personal protective equipment,” said Anita Huberman, CEO, Surrey Board of Trade. “We urge the BC government to implement this bill that will limit fees third-party delivery companies can charge.”
The BC Government needs to implement the private members bill as at least a temporary economic recovery measure for the food and beverage industry.
