Statements by Members: Turner Drug Store

I was proud to stand before the House and speak in recognition of the 80th anniversary of London's-own Turner Drug Store, and the important role small businesses play in cities and communities across Canada.

TRANSCRIPT:

Mr. Speaker, small businesses make up 98% of Canadian businesses and employ over 10 million hard-working Canadians from coast to coast to coast.

One such small business is Turner Drug Store, an independent pharmacy located in my riding of London West, which recently celebrated its 80th anniversary.

Jeffrey Robb, a pharmacist and the current owner, has worked at Turner Drug Store since 1974, when he was just 14 years old.

This small business holds a special place in the hearts of many Londoners as it has provided pharmaceutical, vitamin and herbal remedies to the community for eight decades.

Our government knows the fundamental role that small businesses play in our economy and we will continue to support their growth and success.

I would like to extend my sincerest congratulations to Turner Drug Store for reaching this astounding milestone.
