    There’s a reason why she lost the byelection

  2. It should be, even though I never got CERB.

    They didn’t differentiate between gross and net income. Apparently they meant net income.

  5. If someone received Cerb and they shouldn’t have they should have returned it.

    • The issue at hand here is that CERB was given out without differentiating between net and gross income. An example would be that you have a business and you made $30k, but invested $27k back into the business. Your net income would then be $3k, and would make you ineligible for CERB. This isn’t about fraudulent claims.

  6. I thought it was called CEWS?

  7. There should be clemency based on a case by case basis. If you knew you were committing fraud, then you should pay the penalty.

  8. Net income and gross income makes a huge difference if you are self employeed

  9. Next they will be going after all the ceba payments.

    They need to pay it back. Who cares what time of year it is. You took money that you were not entitled to.

  11. It should be paid back. Anyone who isn’t eligible. This is tax payers money.

  12. To many bums got this..they should have to pay it back.

  13. By the time it is through, they have fled…

  14. Pay back the money period!

  15. The problem is they gave huge amounts of money to company’s in secret. What about that corruption. You can take the money from the government stick in the bank and keep 10k from the loan. It’s laughable stupid

  16. Why do politicians always make it sound like all Canadians are behind what they are saying?

  17. loss income because government did crap job partial shut down allowing infected fly home to self isolate and roxham road where illegals from nyc etc where ccp virus hit hard were still allowed in

  18. They should pay it back asap.

    Green Party leader bwahahahahahahha

  19. I lost my job because of Covid and the CERB really helped me out, but now on Ei and am looking for a job, paying this back now would ruin me.
