The Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) officially launched the beginning of Red Tape Awareness Week starting Jan. 16, 2012. CFIB uses the week to highlight the problems small businesses face dealing with government red tape by publishing videos on its website telling the stories of independent businessmen who have encountered red tape from various government institutions. Watch the videos, and find yourself reflected in some of the stories being told. This one is of a small furniture manufacturer in Ontario.
