    What about all the ppl that didn’t get any money? Isn’t money for all?

    • The Pman Van exactly. Why should some get money and not others. I feel marginalized by the society!!!!

      @Brian J you ARE marginalised what you [and myself feel] IS REAL
      this is NOT an OVERSIGHT
      it IS purposeful and deliberate

    • I am laid off due to covid.but didn’t make $5000 last year and cant get cerb or unemployment yet he’s giving millions still everyone even globally…ya ok

    • Wait till tax time. Not everyone gets the money but everyone will suffer for it.

      @J S wasn’t that changed to $1000? If you lost your income due to covid-19, you do qualify, check CRA website. Also, certain tax brackets won’t pay taxes on it. $15000 or lower and students

  2. Anyone else feel sick when they have to look at this criminal?

  3. The “raise” will probably be one piece of cake. That they will let you eat.

    Oh great… get the cheque book out again. The vote buying and virtue signalling continues….

  5. I agree, too bad JT, you allowed so much harm in ignoring the safety of Canadians, kept the borders open, poo pooed facemasks, etc…

  6. Let’s give them a raise to marginally cover taxes increase.

    Still no answers. Minimum wage workers are not the only workers risking life. Provinces will decide who to screw over. Sounds about right.

  8. Everyone is essential!!!!

    Two words for Trudeau:

    Free money from Justin’s wonderful magical money tree with an endless supply. Sunny Daze is right.

  11. Someone want to step up and be Canada’s greatest hero ever?

    He is fully capable of giving away anyone else’s money, always.

    Every time he speaks he gives out money. He should just stay in that cottage. Maybe he should go back to work. Open up Parliament.

    Every day, when asked any questions he responds with … we have implemented the cerb. Which millions of Canadians have taken advantage of! Everyday!
