Keep spending money we don’t have. The Liberals will be gone before Christmas.

Good thing, i was wondering what the liberals could do with all that borrowed money...

How can this money keep getting doled out? This country is in serious trouble with Huey and Dewy running things. These two are pushing agendas that are all theirs and will cost this country dearly for years and years to come.

I just want my regular ei that I'm entitled to get instead of cerb. Cerb is less $$ with no taxes taken off. Next year the wife and l are going to get crushed come tax time. Both work at the same place that doesn't seem close to opening.

This is staggering amount of money being pumped out without even examining who needs it because... I don't even know why. How much more effect could we have had if we used far less but gave to people who need it most? This is a criminal amount of debt for the laziest measure

I thought Parliament was shut down - who approved it the Libs and the NDP? Or is debate a thing of the past

Yet the liberal_party and NDP keep claiming these benefits are to help vulnerable Canadians while completely ignoring those on welfare and disability Both are generally looking for work or retraining and facing all the same challenges - financial, finding work, childcare ect.
