100 thoughts on “Wage subsidy program opens, first payments expected May 7”

  • Why are we not identifying which municipalities and hospitals have capacity to conduct a reduced rate of elective surgeries ? They are medically necessary, not optional procedures, and there are detrimental health consequences for putting them off. We have been in lockdown for weeks. We have data now that we did not have when we started. Schedule some elective surgeries and then screen the patients over the phone, and put precautions in place. Maybe that wont work in a location which is particularly braced hard for covid. But why are we using a 'one size fits all' approach right now across the country for something as important as elective surgeries? Check each hospital, find where there is capacity, and start doing electives… at a reduced rate if you must.. with precautions if you must.. Sitting on this too long has consequences. And our system already puts some people on months long waiting periods for procedures Before covid hit. Imagine the backlog which is ever growing and all the new health issues which will needed elective surgeries which are occurring right now.

  • Mr. Trudeau we do need to start opening up our country before we have a collapse of our economy. I am talking about one safe step at a time. This will show HOPE; which we all do need. So I pray sir that you will deeply look into this as soon as possible. Blessings.

  • It’s very unfortunate that the same country which makes all the world population seek every few years , is needed to provide the ppc as well! Seeing the connection is helping to stop this “ Business” .

    For time being , it’s The Chinese gov.’s duty to at least send what the world need , free of charge !

  • Thank you mr Trudeau you're doing a great job, be patient people be kind make the right choice keep your family safe if we stick to the rules it'll be over sooner rather then later

  • Ports will Always stay Open…Its a Must
    Without the Longshoremen,Healthcare Workers, Police,Fire,Paramedics, the Economy would be Done..

  • What’s up with CBC censoring the comments. So many of their so called news stories allow no comments. Let the people who pay your wages talk CBC.

  • Test one per household able to return to work and let the rest of that family to stay home and isolate for 3 weeks and then if things are still stable let the rest go to work with federal guidelines. That would reduce the amount of testing, and much easier to track if there is an outbreak.

    Learn from Sweden and end relations with China already. Stop hiding behind Trump and making petty accusations of discrimination to distract from the fact that you clearly choose corporate wealth (and CEOs who will leave the country if you end relations with China) over the lives and long-term well being of our citizens. Prevent capital flight and bring manufacturing back to Canada!

  • Seeing Justie “Aladdin” destroying a country creating communism through government dependency is appalling but not expected, he’s a Liberal, spending other people’s money comes natural to him. It’s in his DNA. Whose going to pay the bill? Single folks with no dependent tax deductions that EARN income? Everyone except the social program parasites are maxed out on taxes. Whose going to pay?

  • Six flights arriving from China to Pearson Airport today. No health checks. No wonder Ontario numbers keep rising. Trudeau is a dirty liar.

  • I think there needs to be a little more thought put into any reopening of the economy.
    Our Economy has come to a screeching halt. As have most Countries in the world.
    This can’t be helped.
    Putting Covid 19 aside for one moment.
    We are a Nation who traditionally has depended on exports to make our economy work.
    Let’s say we bring all the car manufacturing employees back to work. Good deal with wage subsidy going on. Hey everyone is back to work.
    But no one is buying cars. So car company stock piles car.
    Covid 19 crisis ends. No more wage subsidy. No more job because cars have been stockpiled.
    Factory closes.
    Employees on Unemployment.
    Government offers financial incentives to reopen.
    Forget the next generation. If we reopen the economy incorrectly your grandchildren’s grandchildren will still be paying off cost of economy shutting down.
    That scenario does not even consider the fact that a second wave of Covid 19 could come along and put us all in same situation we were in when economy came to screeching halt first time.

  • Too soon? Theres like 100 people a day catching it in BC out of 5 million people! thats nothing! Can liberals do math? The curve is flat and way down. Ya'll are shooting yourself in the foot because of your fear

  • Should put all politicians on the cerb benefit….see if they can survive on $1200.00 a month. Then watch how fast the economy will open up again.

  • We are still worried about PPE supplies?!?! Jeez they are behind the ball on the supply chain again….. Currently, we can’t even get hand or dish soap let alone PPE in this Ontario city currently

  • This whole thing was to allow the economy to go into a depression, lay off 20% of people and give huge social handouts to everyone without anybody thinking it may be a mistake or looking for anyone to blame….Idk if its a bad idea, i just wish the turd wasn’t driving the bus. And we could have a legitimate leader deal wth us honestly.

  • الله يحمي كندا الغاليه ويحفظها ويذهب هذا الوباء عنا وعن كل العالم يارب العالمين ?????

  • Prime minister said if you can't find a job, CERB is for you. I don't think that's correct as per the CERB guidelines.

  • We are serving food, doing laundry and doing housekeeping in senior homes with pretty much getting peanuts. Some times feel like quitting, before the problem was less pay and no virus ?… now we have both ??….I am only staying cause we love our seniors. I always forget my pain when I am with them and listen their wisdom and jokes?

  • The Yellow Cursor says:

    Wait, how do you go from "coast to coast … to coast" ? You mean there are people travelling from Newfoundland to British Columbia and back?

  • I Do not watch nor support CBC . It is paid for by the public…..but CBC backs and works in the interest of government.

  • Yes you can say it's too soon to go back to work for everyone who's struggling but how about you all you do is lie twist the truth

  • Diane N Leblanc says:

    Reading the comments on here, it's unfortunate that there are so many people who can't appreciate anything. I wouldn't want to be them!

  • Don't believe much of what I see and hear from our "Supreme Leader" and his government these days. Been waiting for over 4 weeks for an EI claim to be reviewed and finalized…..haven't seen a penny yet.

  • So are the people who have already recovered been tested again to see if they still have antibodies, or if they have been reinfected? What happens if they already go through their second wave of infection and then come into contact with someone who has not been ill yet? Will they get a stronger version of the virus? Wouldn't the herd immunity approach be better? Especially now that we're under the assumption everyone has already been exposed to it at least once. What if we haven't been tested at all yet? Should we go get tested to see if we are carriers?

  • Look, I didn't vote for Trudeau or Ford, but both are doing better than expected in this worldwide crisis. I salute them for their efforts. It could be much worse. There are 1 Million cases in the US as of an hour ago. I just don't understand people that want to inject lysol, protest and endanger the lives of others.

  • For the attention of millions Canadian retirees, you worked hard all your life and saved every dollar to have for a prosperous old age. Forget about your healthy life saving – the unauthorized man behind closed doors now controls your money playing with the Canadian budget as children play a monopoly. Every day, he pounds billions of inflationary dollars as nails into the coffin of the Canadian economy and budget. Every day your hard-earned dollars are depreciated by empty candy wrappers that the Prime Minister so generously distributes. The pandemic will end soon, with hundreds of billions of blank printed dollars waiting to bring the hyperinflation virus to every home!

  • It would be so interesting that Quebec's journalists display the same incisiveness at Legault’s press conferences as they have here. Unfortunately, they are very submissive towards Legault’s proposals, no matter their lack of seriousness.

  • Over paying Canadians and expecting them to pay it back in a few months sounds like a CRA scam, do they want the refund back in goggle play cards? He said the cerb is to help pay for food, but not rent lol. You want Canadians to pay you back 2k over payment and 3 months back rent to Landlords, give me a break

  • maybe it is time to change the idea of people maxing out on debt .. maybe the fed should stop encouraging everyone to max their debt .. imagine if fed stop pumping asset prices .. people can actually save and take the hit

  • Moistly, peoplekind will adapt with waterbox thingys and Libtard handouts due to the virus times with the usual lack of ambition and neediness exhibited continuously. Creating government dependency is Justie the backstabbing Clown’s goal as it’s job security at the public trough.

  • The Premiers could and should vote of
    "NON CONFIDENCE" Trudeau into the stone age. They wont cause they only care about them.

  • Now, there is a new condition added up: CERB and Wage subsidy, you can just get only one.
    I'm an essential worker and the salary is less than 2,500 per month, (because of less hours, around $1000), am I still eligible to be topped up by CERB??
