popular Intercity store with the addition of a Supercentre grocery department. Prices there are by and large cheaper than the corporate competition which may have placed Quality Market in an even worse position.Lately, the store was negotiating a new contract with its employees. Each of those who were interviewed by local media were overwhelmingly sad not just for themselves and their jobs but for their employers whom they clearly admired.To make matters worse, the Stezenkos have been stalwart supporters of local charity, particularly helping to stock local shelters and soup kitchens with food.Quality Market only this month was named the top regional grocer of the year by the Canadian Federation of Independent Grocers.Canada is locked in an era of free trade that continues to open our markets to the world where competitors often are able to undercut our businesses. Low wage and benefit jurisdictions gain an instant advantage that they are able to assert by launching unfair trade practice challenges.It can be difficult for any entity to embark on a new venture with trade law restraints, and that includes governments. Ontario has launched an ambitious and important green energy initiative designed to compete globally in the lucrative wind and solar markets. But the World Trade Organization has found that Ontario's requirement that electricity generators source up to 60 per cent of their equipment in the province contravenes international trade guidelines.

What a surprise. What a shame.Small business is said to be the bedrock of the Canadian economy. But starting out in business can be difficult, especially in a tough economy.Shortly after the last recession, the Stezenko family built its first local grocery in, ironically, a former Safeway location in Centennial Square on Thunder Bay's south side. By all accounts it thrived, largely on the basis of personal service and quality produce sold by local owners.Thunder Bay says it likes to support local business and many people do, even if it costs them a bit more. But too many people shop on the basis of price alone and the big box store phenomenon has shuttered countless Thunder Bay stores over the years.Still, Quality Market seemed to thrive in a market where three major grocery chains Safeway, Metro and Loblaw/Superstore Prada Bags White were able to undercut it and a handful of Prada Bags New Collection
