Allana will be talking to Gordon Stewart, Executive Director of the Restaurant Association of Nova Scotia. They will be discussing the new restrictions that were just announced and how the restrictions will affect the food and beverage industry, and the new dogs on patio rule that came into effect in late March. On Biz Buzz, we have business updates and milestones, how to best support local with the new restrictions, we’ll tell you about a few virtual events coming up, and more.  We’ll also talk about scheduled summer pedestrian-friendly street closures, waived patio fees, and a COVID-19 report on newly announced Public Health restrictions. Paul MacKinnon, CEO of Downtown Halifax Business Commission gives us updates on summer pedestrian-friendly street closures, waived patio fees, and small-business highlights from the federal budget.
