    Blah blah blah!!!! Talk to your politicians!!!!

  10. Sounds like the message is more for the general public than the politicians who travelled.
    Why would politicians need access to cerb? Do they not get a fixed salary?

    I wonder if he hates these public addresses, you know since he can’t use the snapchat filters.

  12. Don’t use this to virtue-signal when you have literally bankrupted generations of Canadians and broken the law 3 times without consequence

  13. He is right about who should qualify for the benefit and who doesn’t.

  14. Government travels probably 10,000 on vacation in Cuba. While we shelter in place .

  15. When will you resign?! You’re the only one who should be fired immediately!

  16. Justin… it’s not the grocery workers who are traveling. You know full well who is traveling.

    What a joke this government has become, it’s like a circus with new clowns coming up everyday lol.

  18. Justin’s going to have to take extra care he doesn’t get caught on his next trip.

  19. Just threaten an election and he’ll give you that benefit and more regardless who’s travelled where and how often.
