    Ford won’t legislate paid sick days because it’s “playing politics” and yet that’s EXACTLY what he’s doing here.
    Why did he ask for help from Kenney but refused help from Trudeau?

      He is refusing help from Trudeau because he’s looking to destroy Trudeau soon enough for his job. Meaning that he’s not ready to bad mouth him just yet or take any hand outs. Regardless for what it’s for.


    • @Sandy G these essential workers face increased pressure to show up even when they’re not feeling well in order to keep getting shifts. These workers or their loved ones are now ending up hospitalized and dying…

    • @Sandy G Have empathy

      @ridingwithdavid lots of business are booming, just the non essential business and non essential workers are suffering. I bought a house, a new truck and a brand new Honda 100cc quad for my son this year. I didn’t get a penny from the government but I gave them $20k!

  3. So this is why the announcement today is delayed lolz

    I’m sick of the politics. Liberal or conservative the important thing is human life.

  8. Bunch of Muppets in politics idiots just proves its who you know not what you know to get in position of power complete morons

  9. Vote them out. They are done.

    • @Hamza k because they just opened and stopped being scared. The reality is that cases may not even explode when we open. There’s still been plenty of activity just in less places. There’s no proof opening up would cause a huge issue, look how high our case count is already

    • @C Exactly!

      @Existence University i have morals and ethics. That precludes you from political life in this world.

      @Laura Griffin You can change that

      @Existence University If I was 30 years younger, I would consider it. I’ve been battling megacorporations, polluting companies, corruption in politics, etc for most of my adult life. I’m a worn out lioness on the savanna watching the hyenas and vultures take over. I have to hope that a new generation can change things.

  10. It’s called cover they a s s

  11. 😥

  12. So his supervisor sees a reason to get involved but doesn’t because his incompetent fellow employee says that he doesn’t need the help for the 3rd time……? Yey Canadian politrix.

  13. All these disgusting laws are making me an angry canadian

    Was it just me or did he not answer either question???

  15. after 3.5 minutes, he did not answer the question…

  16. I’ll paraphrase Keith Richard, ‘I don’t have problems with viruses, I have problems with the governments’.

  17. Politicians make talking ad nauseam without actually answering the question asked into an artform

  18. I got no strings so I have fun
    I’m not tied up to anyone
    They’ve got strings
    But you can see
    There are no strings on me

  19. Why would the government not due whats best for All Canadians its clear we have been segregated into groups at this point.

  20. We’re awash in douchebags and it’s really starting to stink!
