During the pandemic economic growth went negative. There was a covid "recession".
You are wrong - again. You didn't have to prove 2,000$ loss in income over 4 weeks in order to receive 2,000$ from CERB.Um no........it replaced lost income.
If you filed for CERB and continued to work........the CRA would like to have a word with you.
I think CERB was a good program. When the pandemic first started, I was trapped in quarantine and couldn't do any work (and none of my coworkers were responding... work had halted due to the pandemic). My consulting income completely stopped due to the pandemic.If you want to defend this government, inflation, economy, and fiscal policy is really not a topic you can do it on - objectively their level of sucking reached historic proportions
You are using an anecdote to judge country-wide program.I think CERB was a good program. When the pandemic first started, I was trapped in quarantine and couldn't do any work (and none of my coworkers were responding... work had halted due to the pandemic). My consulting income completely stopped due to the pandemic.
So I filed for CERB and I got the payment within a few days. That was really nice. I only filed once for CERB, but for others facing longer interruptions this was a life-saver for sure.
Great job by the Liberal government and the Trudeau team.
And many people who needed CERB didn't qualify.I was opposed to CERB as a no-strings grant. It should have been a loan. It was only to help people keep liquid and not default on their obligations and be able to feed themselves. I would have been open to it being forgivable after the fact. But many people did not really need CERB.
The "transitory" inflation is going to continue for a while, because there is a whole lot of inflationary pressures.No one talking about the 7.7% inflation? Expectations were 7.4%...
What are you talking about Sags?FYI, with inflation like this, this could be the first year of home ownership where property tax will increase by LESS than inflation. I'm sure we'll catch up next year.
Yea, but just look how nice our downtown looks now......LOL
