COVID-19 update: Goverment passes $107B aid package for Canadians


Author Since: Mar 11, 2019

  1. Wow, So a two bedroom apartment in Hamilton Ontario is 1400 to 1650 a month to rent. How are we supposed to eat and pay our car insurance and utility bill's that are not included in our rent. What a joke. Mortgages here are quite often less then a normal renter's monthly payment. Also I would like to mention that the Home Health care agency I work for ran out of PPE's a long time ago. I was given 2 masks two weeks ago and was told to make my own hand sanitizer . They are single use mask's and I go in and out of nursing home's and private home's all day often seeing 15 to 20 people a day. Our office is on lock down….. How about some PPE equiptment for all of the PSW's putting their live's on the line everyday to keep our vulnerable senior's safe. Never a thumb's up or a word to them….. Well I spent my one day off this week delivering and buying groceries for my client's who can not leave their home's…….

  2. Why they are not allowing the mask for associate to wear at grocery stores? Even the customers are wearing the mask, if the associate got sick then who is responsible for it????

  3. Disingenuous for Trudeau not to give credit to Singh and the NDP for the $2k basic income idea. Glad it's happening either way, but not time to make it universal, not means tested

  4. So I didnt get laid off……unfortunately???.. People pretty much on vacation and gets to stay safe at home, and I work full time 5 days a week all month with this virus out there and make like 200 to 300 more than the people on EI? And pay more taxes and repay everything when everything goes back to normal? Wow. Life is great..

  5. Of course for those living on disability pensions and welfare will only get an across the board hydro cut and increased GST. percentage not disclosed…totally unfair. The US government wants to send checks to ALL Americans! How is that fair? We are also spending extra time driving or busing around to get all our needs met and prices on eggs went up about 35%! Then there are vitamins we can't really afford among many other expenses. I am in Ottawa, Canada as a lifetime born in Canada resident. Thank God the Gas prices have dropped dramatically or it would be catastrophic.

  6. I'm still early in to this broadcast, but I have the question of will people that are home sick or taking care of someone that is sick, would they need to have proof of a positive covid-19 test? Because it seems that most people that are sick, are being told to stay home and self-isolate, but not being given a test.

  7. If you live with family and don't have enough space how do you isolate yourself without infecting your family?

    Also $2000 a month is not going to be enough in Vancouver where the average rent is $2,500.

  8. Hello; I feel we need to focus on the younger generation {gen y} in terms of making it clear how serious this pandmic is more specifically the importance of physical distance and overall cleaning of hands and surfaces. I have been constantly trying to hammer this point home with my daughter and her friends. They truly don`t seem to get it. Perhaps the prime minister could address this both verbally and or through media campains. Thanks for your time.

  9. the property tax , hydro, gas, internet, phone, car insurance, home insurance, mortgage….have to reduce , they are very high price now.

  10. Well it's good news for the self employed. Trying to convince my landlord to take it easy. Thanks Doug Ford for twerking the hydro rates, it helps, it would be nice if Bell or Roger knock off the outrageous bills for internet.

  11. Get ready for a Health Care tax and it will be on guess what? Gas❗Most Canadians will approve of it because it sounds so good just like the carbon tax.

  12. Well what about homeless people what do they get to help get them shelter of funds to hunker down through all this.????

  13. 8 years, Ending on March 31, gonna be a cluster trying to get EI in April, Just My Luck, Twice before never claimed Ei. Just A couple years Each Time, finding a job, Then puting a roof over ones head. Too Many Seek The Easy Way Out. BUTT.. lol.. Now Everyone Is Doing It, LMAO and I'm like, Darrn, Another Thing I'm Gonna Miss Out On. We'll See If "Gov't" Obliges. Unlike So Many Previous Examples. Pshh. Simple Common Sense, Time To Weed Out Some Bad Apples, (& See If I'm One Of Em. LMAO 😉 )

  14. The way the new drafted law is worded, if you lost your job a month or more before now and you were looking for another job and could not get one, you aren't eligible for this new Canada Emergency Response Benefit. So, basically if you weren't already one of the privileged workers in Canada with stable employment, you won't be helped. This is only benefiting a small handful of people. A lot of us have been forced to live on savings with unstable precarious employment and now we're going to have a situation where we can't even get another temporary part time job because businesses everywhere are shut down.

  15. I am very proud of Canada, Canadians and our governments. Keep it up!!!

    There are still huge holes to be sure… price gouging in my town is rampant, gas is $1.22 (what are politicians in Ottawa paying for gas?) and i just paid over $90 for a single bag of groceries. There is no toilet paper, meat, flour, rice et cetera. People are still congregating at the beaches and popular trails (come on ppl). Lots of a$$-trolls tossing negativity grenades and conspiracy theories into the fray – and greedy banks and companies profiteering (mortgage deferral, HA!! no bank will do this voluntarily). Personally, I'm on a disability income, and depend on income from tourists staying in my guest room to make ends meet, barely. I cant imagine that i will qualify for any assistance – the bottom 2% rarely get noticed, we need to stay under the radar to survive in the best of times. Still – I remain positive that we will get by together! we have a long history of looking after each other in hard times. keep it up – keep encouraging each other!

  16. What about those older people who are 60 and up who can't work and are on ODSP ? Do they qualify for the emergency funding in April to?

  17. The hand outs won’t work you will just go back to work and take the chance because you need to eat how long will we wait

  18. For those who haven't been working for a while and cannot look for jobs right now, do they get supported, too?

  19. Just give him a cape and super powers.
    Imagine the most scandalous Prime Minister ever, with Super Powers and a cape.

  20. how do I apply, can I get it if my hours were cut in half but i still work? Is this instead of increasing Child tax credit?

  21. The health minister said coffee is essential???? No Recyclable coffee pods in her house? Plus she could use her reusable mug. Lol most of us have to go to work and go the grocery shop before or after work and don’t forget get gas and booze. Good luck to Us all in stopping the spread of this virus. We’re about 2 weeks behind Italy and they can’t give us clear numbers on this infection now.

  22. If someone comes home from abroad they must isolate at home??? Are you kidding me!? You're putting far too much trust in people and should be holding them in isolation BEFORE sending them home!!!!!

  23. We will sue you Trudeau and be remove you with your corrupted cabinet patriots time to stand noww for the canadien and canada not the illegals it's the ppl and the country

  24. We could have been more like the states though. Funding to get the Expos back in Montreal. Emergency funding for Poutine, maple syrup and discounts at Tim Hortons. Emergency igloo repair. Housing for polar bears. Funding for a Corner Gas reunion movie. A Tesla car 🚗 for every Canadian. Tom Brady in the Canadian football league. We need more attachments in our funding laws like America.

  25. How is it that the vast majority of the Canadian population knows what needs to be done weeks before government does? This is pathetic. A "false sense of security" is way less dangerous than total uncertainty from just telling people to self isolate. We have already seen from Europe that stricter measures are necessary to keep people inside.

    Declare the Quarantine Act, declare the Emergency Act, and do everything possible to prevent the spread. Relying on people to self quarantine DOES NOT WORK. We have had many opportunities to get ahead of this thing and are letting them slip through our fingers. We need to do anything and everything that is remotely possible to prevent the spread. And in order to do that we need REAL LEADERSHIP.

  26. Like canadians need it.. we dont even need to work.. every canadian should have a gold driveway and 2 acres of land..

  27. So. I guess the rule is that if anyone says anything positive about Trudeau that everyone else has to try and turn them conservative? Stop focusing on politics and be glad that you're still alive.

  28. Not sure why people have to apply, just sent it out to everyone. What about disability people and welfare people?

  29. I hate how this spineless PM won't answer a question and just spouts memorized talking points.

    We need real leaders, these reporters are asking the questions our politicians should have asked months ago!

    Get some gamers into power, people who know how to respond to dynamic situations and resource management!

  30. Has anyone looked ahead to natural disasters we may face? Is there a plan in mind for what seems to be annual flooding in The Beaches and areas of Quebec for example?

  31. How about Public Transportation? How do the poor and disabled get around, with no option but to use public transportation!???

  32. IMAGINE THAT….$2 trillion approved in congress in the US without partisan bickering. Yet in Canada, Drew P Scheer successfully claws back financial aid by threatening to debate this in Parliament for days. Cons clawing that piece of food from the mouths of hungry Canadian children.

  33. Trudeau failed policies have now killed over 30 Canadians and infected over 3000. He chose to keep flights coming to Canada from infected countries and called Canadians racists for wanting those flights stopped. He should be in prison for what he's done to this country.

  34. It feels like the banks and the government are working together, banks are extending mortgages at a cost, 6 months will come and go fast. The Canadian government obviously has invested in the banks for pensions and investments. As they invested in SNC Lavalin. The Canadian government is confused with how this will work, and the guidelines are going to change and people will have to pay the money back.

  35. janitors Canada wide companys they should be paying there cleaner more especially hazard pay during this corona-virus they are disinfecting all things in Government building working on the front line and yet they haven't and some of them have kids at home and there are some whom are seniors and pre seniors that work for them.

  36. still confused , what happens if you received the temporary lay off from work today, and apply ei tomorrow, and what happens if they already applied e.i before this new benefit, announced today, what's the difference between ei and this benefit, HOW? and do the people apply earlier before this new benefit, do we still get this new benefit, please help

  37. The Quarantine Act will apply to all Canadian citizens not just those returning from travel. Read the act . This has serious ramifications.

  38. i think or hope ,the government willing to just have everything LOCKDOWN, NO PAYMENTS FROM ALL BILLS OR RENT TO PAY til this Virus is gone and just sent every unemployed/ people and others enough money to buy food.

  39. God can you just take off the mask for a minute and answer like a leader who leads and respects other people’s intelligence. Oh right … you don’t. Why didn’t you have all the equipment and supplies already when you saw Wuhan and Italy ? Be accountable get it off the table and get hustling. There isn’t anything On the The ground to stop it. YOU AREN’T doing everything necessary. If there was a war, you would have all the equipment and more. I am really starting to think this is a mass extinction plan.

  40. CAN SOMEONE HELP ME?? So this is my situation right now:

    I work one full time job as well as a part time job at a restaurant.

    My restaurant job has had to close down due to the virus, so I’m no longer making money from there. I still however, am able to work at my full time job (for now).

    Do I qualify for anything? My restaurant job is extremely helpful with bills and now that I’m not able to work there, where does that leave me?

  41. Please publish a video on benefits provided by Federal or Provincial govt. to international people those are in Canada on Post Graduate Work Permit or on Student visa as both are paying taxes to canadian govt. There are also rumors that if immigrants like people on open work permit will ask for financial benefit from government will no longer be eligible to file Permanent Residency. Please provide any update on it, Thanks

  42. Lol. Trudeau shipped all our medical supplies to China on Feb 9th. Is China going to help Canada now. I doubt it. All while they have 2 Canadian citizens locked up. Shameful government. Shame on you CBC for supporting this government. Oh ya I forgot. You do it all for the money. Not the country.

  43. they could give every Canadian 1 million dollars, and still have 106 billion to give out….. these politicians are lining there pockets every chance they get. makes me sick

  44. Why does he have to keep telling people to isolate after travel. Did they all go scuba diving and now they have to much water in there ears. Your ears are like feet wash them and don't forget to cut your nails.

  45. But who can get it though rich people or those who are actually suffering from it cause you know how people are crazy with stocking stuff.

  46. So if you pay into E.I. you get nothing. E.I. doesn't pay more than 60 percent of your wage. I won't be able to pay rent.

    COMMENT BELOW

    PLS

  54. All canadians need some help April is to long banks want there money landlord want there money and why the hell did the government say that we could go over the allowance to cross border I just crossed the border and bought my food.

  55. There is a big problem with the government’s plan to carry out employment insurance benefit which people are waiting for currently. Service Canada offices are closed and their phone lines are not working. Employee needs record of employment from employers. But Employers can not generate record of employment because government has removed an option to generate this document online. They made it very difficult by creating a online system that connects to CRA for validation which currently is not working. So employers can not generate documents that employees need to get to receive EMployment insurance benefit if this situation prolongs, it will create a disaster. Prime minister coming out and speaking out about the relief he is providing is NOT working as people cannot apply for them.

  56. The WHO is a joke, and Canadian government backing an organization that is in bed with the CCP is a joke as well.

  57. TRUST @POTUS The wolves are being exposed 🌍 Nothing can stop what is coming and they know it The best is yet to come 🙏 for 🇨🇦 🇺🇸 🌍

  58. From [his already established custom of] shopping local to tough love on borders and now this initiative, I must say our prime minister leaves me a bit speechless this afternoon. I feel proud of our leader. I trust in this situation bringing out the best in many. Edit: thank you CBC for the upload.

  59. Why wasn't travel banned earlier ???
    Is this a bioweapon????
    Is the federal government complacent in murder??????

  60. Why not just sent the cheque’s to the little people thru direct deposit. Your bailing out big companies as countless households fail and are in serious trouble. Government is keeping the machine running at the cost of the people that pay taxes. Time for a change and revolt.

  61. I honestly think Trudeau is doing an awesome job. Oh my, I would not want to be a PM now. Please keep safe.
