  1. theres allot of companies that are having problems getting workers too come back because they are getting more collecting the CERB than going back too work.

      Shouldn’t pay workers a non-living wage then.

    • Majority of provinces’ minimum wage FULL TIME pays more than what CERB gives out. (Correct me if I’m wrong)

    • Is that because they pay less than 2k a month. hmmm gotta be a hard life for those companies.

      Yup. Part time or seasonal workers who made $5,000 are just going to take it.

      Preston Fontana yup those companies have no right complaining. Pay your workers better and they will actually have incentive to come back.

  2. Something for nothing, money for free, anarchy to follow!

    • Exactly, I say cancel the wage and rent subsidies for businesses, cancel the ridiculous forgivable loans, heck cancel all corporate bail outs, including bail out for the oil industry.

    Government shall never give out free money. Give the unemployed loans rather than free money.

    • Agreed, give the free money to the teachers staying at home, half the government works drinking beers at home. but those private sector scumbags need to suffer. Hand out money to companies and government works! O sorry that is business as usual in Canada.

  4. It’s not embarrassing. It’s called democracy.

  5. The bloc weighing in on CERB is a joke, can we equalize transfer payments so Quebec doesn’t get a CERB handout more than 2k per citizen every month on top of the normal funding provinces get.

  6. According to Evan Solomon, all opposition parties should just agree with the Liberal minority government, they just gotta.

    Pippen: What about CERB?
    Aragon: you’ve already had it.
    Pippen: we’ve had one yes, what about second CERB?

  9. Trudeau is nonsense and killed Canada with debt.

  10. Evan is a left wing, liberal stooge
