Credit card fees spur protest

A small business lobby unveiled a campaign Thursday to get Canadian consumers to use debit cards or cash as a protest against what merchants say are too-high credit card merchant fees.

The Canadian Federation of Independent Business is giving its 108,000 member businesses signs to be placed at cash registers and tables across the country to promote the alternative method of payment.

“This consumer campaign is the next big step in a two year fight with credit card companies and banks on the rising cost of accepting credit cards,” senior vice president Dan Kelly said in a release.
