Rothesay Council Gets Thumbs Up From Retail Council

The Retail Council of Canada is applauding the decision by Rothesay Council to give preliminary approval to allowing store owners to decide when they should operate on Sundays. 

Jim Cormier of the Retail Council in the Atlantic region tells CHSJ News it really doesn't matter whether any of them actually change from noon to 5pm. He says the malls in Moncton and Dieppe still don't open before noonhour on Sundays even though they can if they wish.

Cormier says the principle here is that government should not be dictating to shop owners when they should be open and shut.
