Over the weekend, Parliament was called in to work through and make changes to the CERB.
411 information online has learned the House of Commons has approved a massive $73-billion wage subsidy program aimed at helping businesses and workers survive the economic ravages of the COVID-19 pandemic.
A bill to implement what Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the most significant economic program since the Second World War was passed Saturday “on division” after some six hours of speeches and debate.
On division means there was some opposition among the handful of MPs in the chamber but there was no recorded vote. It was not immediately clear who objected. Read the full report here https://www.edcns.ca/parliament-passes-73-billion-covid-19-wage-subsidy-bill/
